If you have chosen the Exclusive Stay, these options will be part of your program.

 

Excursion-Activity:  150 euros (same price for 1 or 2 persons)

 

During your stay you might like to explore the region!

 

To add to your authentic French experience, practice your listening and speaking skills outside of the class!

You will spend 3 more hours with me or my mother going on a tour in the area. 

Since my mother retired, she has been roaming around France with her camper-van and will share with you her passion for the regions of France. She will be delighted to accompany you on excursion, she knows a lot about local history and nature. No matter your level, she will adapt the language. 

 

"Spending time with Edwige's mother helped my French considerably, it was great to practice with two different people during the day!" Sam, UK

There is the possibility to explore a charming town together, maybe climbing the light house to enjoy the 360° view, visiting the standing stones, a museum or simply going for a ride or a walk along the beautiful coastal paths...there is so much to do!

There are plenty of brochures for you to choose from in your house.

 

Family Cooking session in French, make your own dinner whilst practicing your French!: 150 euros for 1 person, 170 euros for 2 persons.

 

Elaborate your own meal (family cooking) with the help of my mother and discover French recipes such as blanquette de veau, filet de poisson frais, tarte aux pommes or anything you are happy to cook to practice your French!

This includes the ingredients, minimum 1.30 hour cooking in French and of course the pleasure to enjoy your own cooking for dinner!

Hamper basket Sunday evening: 50 euros for 1 person, 60 euros for 2.

You will find a light meal ready in your fridge when you arrive so you don't have to worry about anything on your first day.  It varies according the season but it will be a mix of meat and fresh food with veggies, fruits, bread and cheese and  bien sûr (of course) a bottle of wine!

We can discuss previously if you have any food preferences.

Atelier (workshop): 150 euros for one or 2 people

We offer the possibility to have 2 more hours in the afternoon, emphasizing on a facet you need to strengthen.

Choose from Grammar, pronunciation or conversation to deepen your practice.

This can be discussed after your arrival if you need a professional advice.

Atelier Grammaire:

 

Two hours to learn and practice tenses, pronouns or any grammar difficulty you might encounter, we will develop automatisms so French grammar will have no secrets for you anymore!

" Her approach is different.  I asked for her help with the subjunctif...the thing many students have come to dread.  Rather than share the traditional tables of what is and isn't subjunctif, we started small, focusing on just a few things until they came to me easily.  My confidence grew as we got further and further into it. "

Susan, USA

Atelier Conversation:

 

This workshop can be more or less formal, depending on your interests, it can vary from playing games to discuss French culture, a movie or simply chatting whilst baking a cake. Multitasking in French can sometimes be beneficial!

I will adapt my questions so you can enjoy speaking French but still be challenged!

"I have been learning French for almost eight years and I have had many teachers during that time. Edwige has to be one of the best teachers that I have met. She adapted the classes very quickly to my level. She brings so much positive energy to each class, it is infectious."

Charlotte, Australia

Atelier Pronunciation :

Most of my students have the fear to not be understood when expressing themselves in French.

It can be tricky to gain confidence especially when the French person replies to you in English!

In this workshop, not only I will give you tricks to ease your French speaking but also your listening.

If you develop your listening skills, automatically your French speaking skills will ameliorate considerably!

"Edwige speaks very clearly and we have found our speaking and listening skills have improved under her excellent tuition.  Apart from anything, her classes are a lot of fun and we laugh together as we struggle (as people in our 60s) to get our tongues around French pronunciation!"

David, Australia
