Programs and prices

You will have to choose between 2 programs (basic or intensive) for your immersion stay, to which you can add options. All prices are listed below. According to your personnal and language aims, you will practise french sharing different activities and moments of everyday life with your tutor.

Arrivals are preferely done on Sunday afternoon (or evening) and departures on Saturday morning. Classes are held 5 days a week from Monday to Friday.

According to reservations already made by other guests, this schedule can be adapted to your holiday wishes : change your arrival/departure day, move lessons to another day in order to plan a full-day excursion for example… 

I stay flexible to make your stay a pleasant and fun experience. If you want to spend most of your time with me in the afternoons, of course I will be available to share it with you. There will be no problem planning an excursion or any visit/ shared activity at the last minute. An immersion program is quite demanding, so it is important to listen to yourself and adapt the week according to your possibilities : have a rest or free time when you need it.

If you would like to be very independant and make visits on your own, that’s possible too !

I will do my best to satisfy my student’s wishes according to their personnality and needs 🙂
