Holiday Brush Up
Whether lounging in the sun, or skiiing in the mountains, holidaying in France presents a fulfilling opportunity to practice your French language skills.
As well as having fun conversing and "testing"
your linguistics on the locals it can often prove vital in ensuring clear communication and understanding when dealing with many of the situations you are likely to encounter whilst abroad.
We can help to bring that rusty French back up to speed through conversation refresher courses where the focus is concentrated on being able to understand spoken language as well as to communicate effectively in a wide range of every day situations.
French Language Immersion
Total Immersion in a Language is the best way to prepare for lengthy trips abroad whether for Business or Leisure.
This is of particular value for individuals or families planning to relocate to a foreign destination where they expect to converse and communicate effectively as soon as possible upon arrival.
As well as the formal French grammar and conversation tuition, there is focus on "real life" street language, - a necessity in order to
understand others and do more than just "get by" in every day situations.
We can offer a schedule of intense French tuition lessons to suit all levels from beginner to advanced. For families relocating abroad, we also provide the preparation needed for the younger members of the family.
Lessons are usually sessions of 2 - 3 hours and held several times per week as required. The duration and times of the lessons are customised around your schedule.
Help and advice with the cultural aspect of a move abroad is an added bonus to help make the transition both a smooth and thoroughly enjoyable experience.
On a personal note, I have relocated with my husband and children from English to French speaking countries (and vice versa) between the USA, France and UK. I fully appreciate how the best preparation can be of benefit to the family at such an exciting time !
