French Immersion Courses BrittanyImmersion Courses in Brittany, France

These courses are offered in our French house in Corseul, a little village just outside of Dinan. They are typically for anyone wishing to fully immerse themselves in a French environment whilst following a French language course, or for French people wishing to take intensive English lessons, who may not wish to travel to the UK or do not have the time to.

 

French Immersion Courses

Our residential French immersion courses offer a structured language programme, based on your level, needs and requirements, with your own private – and very tranquil - accommodation just next door. Lessons are generally from 9 till 12.30 in the morning, and then in the afternoon learning is reinforced through a variety of resources e.g. online exercises and grammar / vocabulary games, books, French TV / DVDs, board games. You will also be able to play table-tennis, darts or table football (all in French of course), and relax in either the sunny conservatory or the cosy living room with its blazing log-burner, according to the season.

Whilst some meals will be shared, accommodation is primarily self-contained in the little gite beside our house, which can easily accommodate two (with the possibility of an extra guest on the sofa bed) if you wish to share the experience with a partner and / or friends.

There will also be the opportunity to put into practice what you are learning, through outings to the local boulangerie and other local shops, as well as visiting some of the local tourist sights and generally interacting with local people. There is likely to be at least one social activity with French friends and neighbours, for instance a very popular event amongst our French friends is a French / English karaoke, so if you like the idea of singing (in either language), do let me know and I’ll try to organise that for when you are here. I will certainly ensure you meet as many French people as possible and have the maximum exposure to French life.

English Immersion Courses

We also offer English immersion courses in France for French people who need to work intensively on their English, but who prefer not to travel abroad for whatever reason. For further details of these courses please look at the “Cours en Immersion” on our French website.


The Standard Options  

3 days (a long weekend), 5 days (Monday to Friday), or a week (7 days) but different durations can also be accommodated

Self-contained accommodation

Lessons from 9 – 12.30 am (with optional extra lessons in afternoon)

Afternoons / evenings – activities / outings (e.g. Dinan, St Malo, Dinard)
Possibility of a full day’s outing to Mont Saint Michel, Rennes, the Bayeux Tapestry or Normandy beaches (or other similar destination of your choosing) for homestays of 5 or more days
A free online lesson before your stay to discuss your requirements more fully and for me to assess your current level so that I can prepare a personalised language programme for you
Free transfers from Dinard / Rennes airport or St Malo ferry port

The “Holiday” Option

Why not combine your language learning with sight-seeing in this beautiful part of France, either during your stay, or at the end? It is possible to rent out our gite purely as a holiday let, so you could consider tagging a holiday on at the end of your immersion course. Please enquire if this would be of interest to you.
