Sample list of Family eduvacations

French in Sainte-Anne, Guadeloupe (Caribbean)

Jane and her husband, Walter, traveled with their children (aged 9 and 5) and stayed at a host family close to the language school. The adults took a semi-intensive French course (group and private lessons) while the children attended the local children’s school in the morning. The whole family spent the afternoon together or participated in the school’s schedule of excursions and cultural activities. After their trip, Jane and Walter told us they really benefited from the classes and their kids really enjoyed spending time with the local children. Overall, it was a successful venture!!

Virginia and her husband, Bob, took a semi intensive French course in the mornings while their 10 year old son Adam attended the local middle school in the morning. They stayed with a very nice host family with three children around Adam’s age (accommodation in a bungalow in the family’s garden, 5 minutes’ walk from the beach). Their possible afternoon and weekend activities included: study visits, a guided hiking trip to the rain forest and volcano, waterfalls for a swim, a visit to a banana plantation, a drum maker at work. A real French & West Indies Cultural Family adventure!!

They also went sailing on the lake nearby, and enjoyed the beautiful garden and pool of their host’s house. Since they had a rental car, they also explored on their own.

Becky, and her 6 year old daughter, Isabel stayed at a studio apartment in the home of our favorite host family. Baby-sitting by the host was arranged for Isabel while Becky attended language classes in the mornings. In the afternoons Becky joined some of the cultural and recreational activities organized by the school with Isabel, or they just stayed in the house by the pool. Since they had a rental car, they also explored on their own.
