They will also be able to take part into many activities with our teachers always around to help them with the language: museum tours, city tours, walks in the UNESCO sites of the South, historical tours, village tours, market shopping, cooking classes, al-fresco dining and a lot more.

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.
