As part of the total “Language Experience” offered by French à la Carte, there are several opportunities for our adult students to attend full immersion days or weeks, in Australia or overseas.
French à la Carte has been offering these immersions for many years. There have been several trips to France in wonderful locations such Provence, Dordogne and recently to Nouméa where our students had a taste of paradise!
We have also organised several 2 to 4 day immersion trips within NSW to places such as Bowral, Bungendore, the Hunter Valley or the Blue Mountains.
The purpose of our immersions is to create an environment where only French is spoken. No English is allowed during the whole stay! It can be a bit overwhelming at first, but it very quickly becomes easier and easier, and you are guaranteed to make significant progress in your understanding and speaking in a very short time.
During an immersion, students typically attend classes in the morning and participate in activities during the afternoon, whilst continuing to speak French. Students are taught by French à la Carte teachers or qualified native speaker teachers from overseas service providers. We take all our meals together, and optional activities are offered in the evenings, such as playing games, or chatting around the fireplace.
Accommodation is organised in hotels, in individual rooms or shared rooms for those who would like to travel with a friend or partner. Please note however that everyone participating in the immersion, including partners, must adhere to the rule of speaking only French during the entire stay.
Our immersions are usually split into two groups of different levels: Intermediate and Advanced. Each group can take up to 20 participants, with one or two French à la Carte teacher(s) accompanying the group.
Everyone is welcome to join our immersions, whether they have been students with us or not. For non French à la Carte students, we’ll assess if your level of French is sufficient to participate in the immersion before confirming your booking.
