ABSOLUTE BEGINNER IN FRENCH LANGUAGE
If you are an absolute beginner, your intensive French course time will be divided between theory and practice.
In the morning, you will learn the basics: how to introduce yourself, how to count, and how to ask standard questions. You will then be placed in a variety of situations which will help you to put your knowledge to work. For example, you will be accompanied by your instructor as you go to the bakery to buy bread. You will ask how much it costs before you decide on a purchase. On the way there, you will be introduced to a new person that will give you the opportunity to introduce yourself in French.
Over lunch, you will learn the names of the wines and dishes you are tasting, and will comment on the meal.
In the afternoon, your instructor will accompany you on a tour of the island. At the end of the day, you will reinforce your newly-acquired knowledge through a series of exercises and games.
EXPERIENCED BEGINNER IN FRENCH LANGUAGE
If you are an experienced beginner, and feel your progress is too slow; if you aspire to speak French with increased spontaneity, and you would like to be able to keep up with the normal pace of a French conversation, it is the option of the intensive French courses that you will select.
First, your instructor will identify your stumbling blocks. Drawing on a variety of strategies, she will help you to overcome the obstacles to your expression.
