About the Event
French language immersion with multiple activities in French for all levels - from beginner to fluent.
This immersion includes two hours of formal language classes per day, as well as immersion activities and workshops: tours, great food, cooking classs, food market tours, wine tastings and a lot more.
A total of over 50 hours of effective French language practice in complete immersion.
We will meet in Lyon on 29/05/2022. We have booked a hotel in the heart of the Vieux-Lyon with a local restaurant. The following day, we will tour Lyon, before heading to our village stay.
We will spend the week in the Lodges Laô, hosted by a lovely couple, Sonia and Rémy. The Lodges are a family owned B&B with beautifully decorated rooms (all different), set in a former family winery. The Lodges are located in the middle of vineyards, next door to Bully castle and a short 600m stroll away from the center of the village where you will find a café, a restaurant, an epicery and a small market.
Guests staying at the Lodges will have a full breakfast served morning made from delicious local farm produces, full access to the kitchen and to the outdoor spa bath.
All students will have 2 hours per day of French lessons at the Lodges, either in their conference room or outside, weather permitting. Students will have several coffee/tea breaks everyday to relax in between lessons, tours and visits.
From this beautiful location, we will be able to visit the region and learn French.

Gwendoline has over 15 years of experience as a tour designer and leader as well as extended experience as a language teacher and course designer.
Our immersion stays combine picturesque places, local insights, out of the beaten track places to see, professional yet relaxed classes, always in a friendly and caring atmosphere. Many of our students travel with us every year.
We keep our groups small and our schedule flexible to make sure every participant gets enough attention and has a chance to improve their level. We also like to plan surprises along the way, so we never tell you everything that is going to happen. Surprise can be an activity that everyone will enjoy, a surprise afternoon tea, a restaurant or anything that will put a smile on everyone's face and add a Wow factor to your trip.
Finally, we know that being in a group is not always easy and sometimes we all need some alone time, that's why we always give everyone some space and cater for participants wanting some time off, even if it wasn't planned.
Let your guide and French teachers guide you through their native country and region, book your spot today.
