Why compromise between a top quality total-immersion French course and the beach? Come study French on Guadeloupe, a French-speaking island 300 miles southeast of Puerto Rico. Our school is a minute away from Sainte Anne's Beach, one of the most beautiful on the island.
We have many years experience in studying the learning process and the design of language courses at the standard and intensive levels. Our groups are small, our teachers are highly qualified, and you can enjoy our beautiful Caribbean environment.
Our school is open year round and welcomes students of all levels for program units from 20 to 120 hours, spread out over everything from 2 weeks to 3 months or more. Each program can be adapted to meet your individual objectives.
- General French:
20 hours (semi-intensive) or 30 hours (intensive) a week. Maximum 6 persons per group. The emphasis is on active learning techniques. Because most of our clients have a professional background or professional objectives, our school focuses on French grammar as well as useful, everyday verbal skills. All levels of students participate in interactive workshops where they learn and practice their new French language abilities.
Upon enrollment, students are evaluated for placement in workshops of an appropriate level. Students specify their individual learning needs and the type of French language difficulties they encounter on a routine, daily basis. This information allows us to design each course to meet the each student's unique learning needs.
In the semi-intensive course, at least one workshop per week is dedicated to each student's personal French language problems. In the intensive or one-to-one course, the amount of time dedicated to each student's objectives is increased.
Global workshops usually focus on local Guadeloupe topics. Students learn about a wide variety of political, cultural and economic issues in order to better understand life in the French West Indies while enhancing their French language skills.
