This is a French and French Culture Course suitable for all levels. The activities and topics are tailored to individual needs with the emphasis on speaking, understanding and personal interaction, with more talking than writing but with a sound structure of grammar, vocabulary and listening skills. All materials provided. Groups are restricted to a maximum of 6 people. Each student gets that essential personal attention and speaking time to make progress. Our tutors are professionals who are native French speakers. The formal teaching is mainly in the morning, with a negotiated programme of afternoon activities. These include practical exercises, guided visits, getting out and about to meet & talk to people. Of course it may be that you would like to go exploring, biking or simply relax in the garden - all possible, it is your course and your holiday after all.
