French Language Immersion in Nice

Summary

Itinerary

Go learn to speak French on this unique 1 week complete French immersion course in or near Nice where you live-in with your teacher to fully immerse yourself in the language and culture of France and accelerate your French learning experience.

Highlights of the Trip

  • Accelerate your learning; 1 week equivalent to 1 month in a classroom.
  • Includes accommodation, all meals and private lessons tailored to suit your needs.
  • PLUS at least 3 accompanied outings to places of local interest.

This is no ordinary French language learning experience, as you will not just be led through a text book but, instead, live with your teacher in the beautiful city of Nice, meaning that you will be guided through the language at all times to really help develop your linguistic skills and put them into practice from day 1.

These French language immersion programmes have shown to give the same results in 1 week as opposed to 4 weeks in a language school classroom environment which means making the most of your time in France.

Finding the best tutor for you is important to us to ensure you not only receive the best tuition but also the comfort of a home away from home. We ask you to provide us with a little information about you and what you want to get out of the course as well as what your interests are and any allergies or dietary requirements and so on. This then allows us to find your perfect tutor match.

Accommodation in your own private room in the teacher’s house is included in the cost of the holiday, as well as 3 meals a day plus at least 3 accompanied outings to local places of interest during the week. This means that not only do you get to experience local cuisine and cultural & local customs but you will also have the chance to practice the language outside of your lessons in a natural environment in the company of native speakers.

Although you are living with your teacher, you are of course free to come and go as you please so you have complete freedom and the opportunity to explore everything the city of Nice and the Côte d’Azur has to offer on this learning holiday with a difference.
