Dreaming of speaking French on holiday

If you would love to be able to converse with the locals whilst on holiday in France, but you can’t see yourself finding the time for lessons before you go, why not consider combining the two – i.e. a French holiday with the option of French lessons whilst you’re there?

Language Gateway offers bespoke language stays, designed absolutely with you and your budget in mind. Our cosy little character gite can be rented simply as a holiday let, but French lessons can be taken during your stay, and indeed beforehand by means of an online platform. The number is entirely up to you – it can be as little as a one-off, or as many as 3 or 4 hours a day.

We are based in a little village called Corseul, just North of Dinan, which is a perfect location for visiting the beautiful sites of Brittany, and at the same time offers a quiet conducive atmosphere for both relaxation and learning.

Because the gite is separate and yet adjoining our house, you will also have the independence and autonomy to relax in your own private space, whilst at the same time being welcome to join us next door for meals, activities and social events.

There will also be the possibility of language outings – to the shops, or tourist sites for instance – where you can practise the language you’re learning with your teacher by your side, encouraging and gently correcting.

By the end of your stay, not only will you be speaking French, but you’ll be dreaming it as well!
