Immersion french classes
at your teacher’s house
2 weeks of French immersion course in Hyères = 1 year of study
You will spend a week or more with a teacher who is both your host and your tutor and make rapid progress over a shorter period than a traditional language course.
Checking your starting level, your needs and goals, Karine will prepare a program of fully dedicated one to one courses. She will help you revise or consolidate your basic grammar, improve your pronunciation and especially to feel more comfortable at public speaking.
No distractions will disturb your concentration and effort and for the more shy, you do not have to face the fear of speaking in public because you are the only participant.
Beyond the classroom, you can chat with your teacher and improve your oral communication skills.
These statements are always rewarding not only in terms of language (pronunciation, speed, fluidity, comfort) but also because of the cultural exchange and enable the exchange of ideas involving views and different cultures. This is an opportunity to see how the French comprehend particular phenomenon of society.
According to the needs and demands, the course content can be directed on topics related to the professional world: writing mails, oral presentations, chairing meetings or exam preparation.
