The typical French language homestay program
(7 Days, 6 Nights)
Provides constant support from your teacher through…
Semi-individual tuition: 2 students (same party, compatible levels)
French lessons in the morning, designed for your level and particular needs
3 hours a day x 5 days
Privatisation for ONE student, on request
The lessons will cover speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. We will set together a work plan based on your strengths and weaknesses but also, mainly on your objectives: light program or more intensive program for students preparing the Delf or Dalf exams.
The idea is to zero in what you need most to kick-start your French learning.
Numerous opportunities to take part in conversation.
6 breakfasts with me every day before the lessons.
6 conversational meals a week (Lunch or Dinner).
Possibility of extra conversational meals at an additional cost.
Lodging in one of the 3 beautifully designed B&B rooms.
2 accompanied excursions or cultural activities.
Possibility of extra excursions on request.
Station pick-up (La Ciotat).
Please note that although the seclusion of the property has its unique Provençal appeal, it is more than advisable to have your own transport to enjoy it fully!
