An alternative approach to traditional language learning ! Students study the French language while travelling and sightesseing in the Languedoc Roussillon. We offer a travelling teacher to accompany students on a sightseeing trip and the effect is full immersion into French language and culture. Couple and family programmes are becoming more popular as students swap their annual family holidays for a language learning experience. If they have specific objectives, or want to make the maximum progress in the shortest limited time, the flexibility of a home tuition course may be what they are looking for ; they live and learn in their tutor’s home or the tutor comes everyday to their rented accommodation. The course is designed for individual students who study what they need and they build confidence by speaking French all day. At any language school, extra activities can often prove a strong attraction. New options, apart from excursions, include cycling along the Canal du Midi and to the Mediterranean sea, golf, tennis and horse-riding or sailing. Tutors at home also meet very specific needs, such as exam preparation, business communication and job interview skills. Sudents willing to book individual courses know the progress they make in a week is very good !
