FRENCH IMMERSION IN BRITTANY
My visit to Thourie was by far the most successful experience with oral French I have had since starting to learn French. I think you have the perfect formula for those who want to practice speaking French in a sympathetic environment, and with no time constraints.
Since all our discussions were about practical activities and real everyday matters, there was nothing artificial or contrived about the conversations. I think that this is very important and I believe that this is why my visit was so successful – since each day involves normal domestic events as well as different types of activity (visits, etc).
My experience was significantly better than with hourly conversation classes – not least because there was less time-wasting, more relevance and minimal interruptions to discuss grammar and so forth. Not only that, but my confidence increased considerably as a result of the positive experience.
It was therefore a particularly successful visit for me personally. I can only congratulate you on your energy and willingness to find different visits and topics and to keep the conversation going!
You are welcome to use this feedback about my personal experience if you wish to share my perspective with others.
With my very best wishes.
Many thanks for an excellent week - I have really benefited from the immersion course which I found to be very enjoyable Thanks to your enthusiasm and commitment I am speaking French more fluently and with more confidence
Your course provides excellent value for money- I do recommend it to people who really want to improve their French
Thank you. Tony.
