7 Day French Immersion Course à Paris

Daily classes & activities ALL IN FRENCH

2020 Sept 14 – 20: Intermediate

HOW DID RICHARD LIKE IT?

“Immersion weekend was amazing, it was just a wonderful experience!

Virginie is a wonderful teacher, I’ve been taking her online courses for a couple of months now and this was just an exceptional way to improve! I can’t believe how much better I am at speaking, how much more comfortable I am with it!

Her activities outside of the class were just so much fun. We met some incredible people, we had a great dinner last night and met the wonderful chef, we’re here at the bakery today, at the boulangerie, making madeleines and macarons.

The people who were in the class were wonderful. It was the best experience, I can’t wait to go to France and do the week long immersion!”

100% FRENCH EXPERIENCE

How best to improve your French conversation skills than by being in France, surrounded with French culture and French people who will ONLY speak French to you? Yet so many times I have heard visitors express their disappointment at not really being given the chance to practice their French. Why? Because more & more French people, especially in big cities, speak English fairly well and are just so excited to practice their new skills with you! This ends up being nice and comfortable for you but not so satisfying or helpful for improving your French speaking ability!

DAILY FRENCH CLASSES

This is the reason why I have created this 7 DAY FULL IMMERSION COURSE for you, filled with daily classes & enriching adventures with French people who will only speak French with you. No English! It’s amazing how much you can learn and retain in such a conducive atmosphere in as little as 7 days. Mornings will be dedicated to French language classes and afternoons will be filled with interesting activities such as: visiting local artisans and environmentally aware entrepreneurs, baking with local organic chocolatiers, discovering Paris History on our walks, perusing organic markets, wine tasting, discovering a medieval village outside of Paris, cinema, museum… all in French!

Daily French language classes & enriching adventures (visit local artisans & entrepreneurs, wine tasting, cooking class with organic chocolatier, nearby medieval village day trip, historical Paris walks, etc.) with French people… ALL IN FRENCH!

What best way to begin our week together and break the ice than with some delicious wine shared with our French friends?

Lunch: Free or together with suggested options.

Afternoon & evening: Visit “Trois fois vin” wine boutique, discovery, tasting, and exchange with the owner and staff.

DAY 3: Paris romantic cemeteries

Paris cemeteries are among my favorite places: beauty, peace, harmony… and fabulous celebrities! 

Morning: Petit-déjeuner at the hotel & class.

Lunch: Free or together with suggested options.

Afternoon & evening: exploring the cemeteries & walking through History while learning about my favorite (dead) people.

DAY 4: Medieval village outside of Paris

Half way through our week together, let’s go explore the stunning medieval Provins with our local friends who will walk us around and share the day with us. After taking our breakfast at the hotel, we’ll head there!

Morning: Explore the village & shopping with our friends.

Lunch: Together with our hosts.

Afternoon & evening: Visit medieval castle, monuments, gardens.

DAY 5: Back to Paris with the Artisans

Paris isn’t called “La ville des artisans” for nothing. There is so much talent, creativity, and desire to positively contribute to our world here so I just have to share some of it with you.

Morning: Petit-déjeuner at the hotel & class.

Lunch: Free or together with suggested options.

Afternoon & evening: Visit & presentation of a famous Parisian artisan cooperative, creative workshop taught by one of the artisans, meeting with the owners / managers.

DAY 6: Organic Market, Cafés, & Cinéma

France has been famous worldwide for its Gastronomy for more than three centuries. In the era of processed fast food, some Parisian super heroes work hard to bring us the best produce, products, ingredients, organic, local, grown or made with love.

Morning: Petit-déjeuner at the hotel & off to one of my favorite organic Parisian markets. Let’s meet the famers as well as all the wonderful artisan food stores around.

Lunch: A charming nearby café will welcome us so that we can share & devour our delicious goodies!

Afternoon & evening: Class happens in the afternoon this time, followed by a French movie au cinéma!

DAY 7: Paris… Past & Future

Paris is just like an outside museum, the history, the architecture, the universities, the boulevards, the churches… the grandiose past of France is everywhere you look. And then there’s the 21st century filled with a new environmentally aware generation, which I was surprised to find so present, so inventive, so hard working, so joyful. Past & future, making Paris forever la plus belle.

Morning: Petit-déjeuner at the hotel & class.

Lunch & afternoon: Together at the Recyclerie followed by a private visit & explanation of their brilliant & bold concept, followed by a hands on green workshop on site.

Evening: Let’s say au revoir in the most special, beautiful, magical setting, my favorite in fact! This chilled and gorgeous rooftop bar offers breathtakingly beautiful views of Paris.

More Info

One of the many things I adore about Paris is that it is so walkable! I personally rarely take the métro and try to walk everywhere trying to use a different route each time so I am forever mesmerized. Since we’ll be sitting pretty much every morning for class, we’ll make up for it the rest of the day by exploring, which means a fair amount of walking! Walking is the finest way to soak it all in and notice all the details.
