Trip to Provence

Studies and experiences have shown that the fastest way to progress in speaking a foreign language is through total language and culture immersion, with daily contact with the natives.

Level:
In order to participate, you need to at least be able
-To understand simple conversations (or more elaborate when it is spoken slowly)
-To respond even with hesitation
-To bring your point across most of the time
You are familiar with the conjugation of the most frequent verbs in present, future and past.

Goal

To identify your common mistakes and gently work on correcting them. (When needed, integrating  the correct expression with humor through conversational repetitions.)

To boost self confidence while speaking the French language, to acquire more fluency, to expand vocabulary, to deepen your understanding of the grammar and improve your pronunciation.

Suggestions to improve language skills while in France

Journaling in French: (Opt)

Have a quiet period each day, (in your room, at a café table eating your croissant, during an outing at a lake…),  to write in a journal about your recent experience. You are encouraged to insert words from the vocabulary list.

Keep speaking French only avec moi, with each other, with people you meet, interacting with the natives, becoming a part of the life of the village.

As your French coach, my role is to gently guide you to accuracy while encouraging the flow of your verbal expression.

Entering the Medieval village of Aups en Provence

Medieval village of Aups in Provence

In either a “maison de village in the Heart of the charming Medieval village of Aups, going back from the 8th century, where you become a part of la vie de village, come and go as you please or/and in a lovely villa, walking distance to Aups yet in a beautiful country setting, so you can experience the joy of the country side near by with its enticing sounds and fragrances.

Below is a list of some of the wonders we will be surrounded with and will leisurely be experiencing. Most are at a very short distance from where we will stay.
