Learn French

"We spend far too much time on the rules of language. As a result, students are forced to suffer through grammar-focused instruction that makes them adept at conjugating verbs but leaves them mute when they are pressed to have a conversation. What they need instead is the chance to use language the way it was intended, as a tool for communication, not as a complex set of rules to master." Our French trips immerse the students at every point into daily life, and fun adventures giving a welcoming surrounding to speak the language…

Cultural Immersion

With a vast and diverse history and layers of cultural heritage, it's hard to know where to start. The primary purpose of our trips is to learn through adventure and ensure students leave with the confidence to build their language skills. We want to immerse students into every day life in southern France from speaking to the vendors at the open market stalls in Marseilles to helping their host families cook a typical French meal in the evening and joining French class with our partners in an international school. And of course, no trip to France is complete without following the great artists trail or wondering through ancient history...

Outdoor Adventure

Learn through adventure as you drift down the Ardeche river on a kayak or canoe. Let the language flow through you as gaze at the spectacular cliffs and breathtaking landscapes. We organise day or overnight trips camping out on the river banks and gazing at the stars. And for the more adventurous, we take you on our flagship canyoning experience with expert instructors or biking through the serene hills of the Provence. With every experience, we want students to be immersed in the language while the adventure instils a confidence in taking on a personal challenge...
