You’ll be dreaming in French in no time! Get ready for a very intensive, 60 total hours of immersion per week with 15 hours of classroom theory plus 45 hours of conversation during sports, on walks, with visitors, and on excursions. This super intensive, small group “French-only” eduVacation is run by a couple devoted to sharing their language and culture with foreigners, and to creating the ultimate total immersion experience. Their school is located in the middle of Bresse at an altitude of 200 meters between the Burgundy region and the Jura Mountains. You’ll explore this area during your stay.

You’ll stay with the host family/directors in their farmhouse in Frontenaud, situated slightly west of the French Alps, west of Geneva and north of Lyon in a rural setting. Your home-base, a renovated farmhouse, features lounges and classrooms, an indoor swimming pool, and game rooms. Nearby are sports fields, a pond (with boats) and the river.

Get ready for a very intensive, 60 total hours of immersion per week (15 hours of classroom theory plus 45 hours of conversation during sports, on walks, with visitors, and on excursions offered 4 times/week) with only 3-8 participants per class. Courses deal with both oral and written language and are tailored to the level, interest, and particular difficulties of the student. There is an emphasis on the vocabulary, grammar, melody and rhythm of the language. Preparations for the 4 excursions that are planned each week is a small part of course work and involves discussion of the history, geography, politics, art, culture, architecture and climate.

Minimum stay: 2 weeks for beginners; 1 week for non-beginners; maximum, 4 weeks.
