One-to-one French courses in total immersion in France.
Your teacher, Janet, has over 30 years of experience in language teaching to adults. She is British, bilingual, English and French, and has been living in France since 1981. Her husband Daniel is French. He’s a retired cabinet maker. Janet and Daniel only speak French at home. What could be a better opportunity to study and practise French as well as enjoying the delights of Aquitaine in the South-West of France!
Janet & Daniel welcome you to stay at their typical 17th century Béarnaise house in the countryside just outside a little village. Their house is just 45 minutes from both Pau and Biarritz airports, with good road links. The accommodation offers a comfortable room with a double bed and private shower room.
All your meals will be taken with Janet and Daniel, from the evening meal of your arrival to breakfast on your departure day. So you will have plenty of time to practise your French. Daniel loves cooking and will be delighted to offer you real French family cooking.
Lessons will be in the mornings and you choose the number of hours you wish to study during your stay, 10, 15 or 20 hours a week. Janet will test you before you arrive in order to assess your level of French and find out about your objectives. The course will then be tailored to meet your individual needs.
Afternoons are free to do whatever you like: just relax, do some home-study (you will have free Internet access – Wi-Fi for the whole of your stay) or go sightseeing. The region has so much beautiful countryside to explore, places of interest to see and sporting activities to do. The area is perfect for walking, cycling & fishing. There is also a thermal spa centre just 5 kilometres away. Aquitaine is renowned for its beaches which are perfect for family and surfers alike.
The course does not include any transport or transfer expenses.
Think about hiring a car at the airport if you are coming by plane.
The courses are open to adults (ages 18+): The lessons are one-to-one, but your partner would be welcome to stay whether he or she wishes to participate in the lessons or not. If a couple wish to participate together, they must have the same level of French for the course to be profitable to both parties and there would be a reduction for two people.
