You haven’t been able to get away to France in a long time for your fix of French culture, so we’re bringing the experience to you!

We are proposing a French mini-immersion in the Hunter Valley, at the unique and cosy H Boutique Hotel. This immersion includes 3 nights accommodation, all meals, French language and cultural activities and a great program of excursions with accompanying French à la Carte teachers Blandine & Marion.  It’s the perfect opportunity to practice your French “for real”, with friends, while having fun at the same time!

Each group will have a maximum of 20 participants and will be accompanied by 2 teachers.

Attention: THIS IS A FULL IMMERSION WORKSHOP – 100% FRENCH – NO ENGLISH !

 

Who can participate?

This immersion is for high UPPER-INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED & FLUENCY levels only. You need to have a very good command of French to participate, as no English will be allowed during the entire immersion. If you are not sure of your level, please contact Marion at marion@frenchalacarte.com.au to chat about your level and what group would suit you best.

When

This immersion will take place from Tuesday 22 June to Friday 25 June 2021.
We will meet on Tuesday at 2pm at H Boutique Hotel for our check-in, and start our first lesson at 3pm. Our immersion will officially end on Friday at 12pm. Those who wish can stay with us for one last meal together, in French (!), in a restaurant nearby (meal not included).
