French for Francophiles
This is a course for people with some prior knowledge of French looking to improve. The aim is for you to have fun and enjoy talking, listening and starting to think in French while learning about the people and culture of France. There will be a lot more talking than writing, and you will also be extending and building your grammar, vocabulary and listening skills in the tender care of our tutors.
The groups at L’Age Baston are kept small. This will give you enough of that personal attention and speaking time you need to make the right kind of progress. Time enough to get to know your tutors and fellow students and time to ‘tune in’ to different voices. There is a 3 hour classroom-based session every morning and you work in groups determined by your level.
In the afternoons you have optional guided visits and trips to local places of interest. The visits are often based on things discussed in the morning sessions and sometimes have practical exercises attached. Of course some people prefer to spend the afternoons sitting by the pool sipping pastis, and that’s perfectly okay too. All course materials are included.
So whether you’re learning for business or pleasure, rest assured that our French team will provide the right motivation so that you will make good progress in enjoyable surroundings.
When you book your Francophiles course at L’Age Baston we will send you our own French Language Questionnaire to help our tutors decide the groups and materials to use. It is straightforward to fill in and best done without help! Return the completed questionnaire to give our tutor team an even better chance of organising a wonderful French experience for you.
If you want to learn at a faster pace then our Intensive French course will give you up to 30 hours of tuition over a week’s stay. With tutored sessions both morning and afternoon, this is a concentrated approach that gives you a minimum of 5 hours a day tutor contact plus guided self-study and homework as required.
Intensive French will suit students with prior knowledge of French. The activities are varied and our tutors are very good at selecting topics and materials to suit your level and interests. You will have French TV, newspapers, magazine, films and books to help you.
French Intensive at L’Age Baston offers you experienced French mother tongue tutors and small student groups in elegant and calm surroundings. It is hard work but can be highly rewarding. To make the most of it you should be clear about your motivation and maybe do some preparatory work beforehand.
