Language Homestays in France – ideal for students
Our language homestays in Brittany (in a little village called Corseul near Dinan) are ideal for both French and English students who wish to immerse themselves in either an English or a French world. French students can immerse themselves completely in an English environment by experiencing daily life in a British home, without having to cross the Channel, while English students will naturally be immersed in French culture by staying with us here, where they will get a fascinating insight into a French way of life and will be able to visit many places of interest in the area.
As well as improving your linguistic ability in a natural and fun way, you will have private lessons with me, an experienced and qualified teacher. I will structure your training according to your needs and wishes, which will be discussed before you arrive.
You will have your own room (with shared bathroom) in our house and be treated very much as part of the family, joining us for meals and socialising with us in the evenings. My husband, John, is an IT consultant, and we have three daughters: Natasha who is currently studying at Rennes University, Hannah who is at 6th form college in England and Tabitha who is still at secondary school.
Ordinarily, lessons will take place in the morning, and in the afternoon you’ll be able to take advantage of all the linguistic resources provided in order to reinforce your learning: television, DVDs, Wii, games/exercises on the computer and also activities such as table tennis, darts, table football. There will be outings in order to practise your newly-found linguistic skills and, for an optional extra, there is also the possibility of a day’s trip to Jersey - of especial interest to our French guests, who will be able to put their English knowledge well and truly to the test.
During the week, you will have the option to prepare for a presentation to be given on your last day, which will demonstrate all that you have learnt. This will be videoed along with other key moments during your stay, so that you will have a lasting memory of your stay.
Because each homestay is tailored to your particular needs, the actual price may vary, but to give you an idea of the cost for one person all inclusive:
3-days - £435 / €480
5-days - £860 / €950
7-days - £1130 / €1250
