OVERIEW OF THE TRIP
French teacher immersion workshops are designed especially for language teachers, to make them better informed about today’s French culture and language. We spend twelve days of non-stop immersion experiencing both: morning seminars focus on the burning issues of France today; afternoon excursions explore places of historical and cultural interest. Bien sûr, nous ne parlons que français pendant tout le séjour, as all use of the English language is discouraged. We stay in a different city in France each year and fan out to the neighboring countryside for day trips. You’ll need to unpack only once, and you’ll come away from the workshop with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the region and its particular characteristics.
By attending our French teacher immersion workshop, educators not only increase their language fluency and understanding of French culture, they also earn the respect of supervisors and parents who appreciate their efforts to bring today’s France into their classroom. Students are grateful for their teacher’s understanding of recent events in Europe which in turn makes the students better prepared for tomorrow’s world. We focus on the themes taught in the advanced classes in high schools in the US, and our Advisory Board serves to ensure the highest levels of academic excellence.
See the extensive list below of the cities in which we have been proudly holding our workshops since 1998. Our 2018 French teacher workshop will be held in the dynamic city of Lyon, France’s third city. Come rejuvenate your French skills with us. Vous ne le regretterez pas.
