French Immersion Program
Enjoy the efficiency of French intensive courses while discovering and living for a few days in a typical Provencal village!
This French intensive Program is made for people who want to progress quickly in their French studies. There is nothing better than staying a week or two in France and practising all day long to boost your French language abilities.
Whether it is for leisure or professional reasons GREOLINGUA offers you the possibility to stay in a lovely and peaceful village, the perfect learning environment. More than a learning course you will discover the real Provencal life in a typical medieval perched village.
Gréolières is a charming place just 45 minutes away from Nice Airport, surrounded by mountains (860 metres high). You will be hosted in one of the charming local properties, where your French lessons will take place.
There is a list of accommodation at the bottom of this page.
Your personalised French Course: Classes are usually for a minimum of one week (5 days of study) and are normally designed for one or two students.
You can choose the half day program: 3 hours of class per day or the full day program: 6 hours of lessons per day.
Previous to your stay we evaluate your level and goals in French and make a complete program of your studies and activities to make your stay the most enjoyable for you and the most efficient training as possible.
Usually each morning is planned as a complete class, following a progressive method (with new vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation points) and the emphasis is on conversational skills (understanding and speaking abilities)
I will give you the tools to feel at ease and to communicate better with interactive exercises. You will have the opportunity to put your French into real practice with the activities of your choice and the teacher will make you feel comfortable practising your French with other people while doing the activities you really enjoy!
In Gréolières: communicating with French people with different skills and professions (artists, bee-keepers, chefs, lavender producers, history teacher...), doing activities you wish such as cooking, going to the restaurants of the village and enjoying the beautiful walks, nearby skiing, or paragliding for the more sporty among you.
Around the area: I can take you to other villages visiting markets, museums, going to local events or to the cities of your choice on the French Riviera such as Antibes or Nice. Towards the end of your stay, I will do a general review of what you have learned in order to reinforce the new knowledge and an evaluation will be made.
Material such as books and documents will be supplied at no cost by the teacher.
