French for families

If you’re moving to France as a family – with your children, you can learn French together – and separately – at Work your Way to France in a one week course

In the morning, the parents go studying grammar, vocabulary and conversation, while the children at the same time discover the French language in a playful manner with songs, drawing, videos and some outdoor activities.
In the afternoon you could choose to work further on grammar (one parent at a time) with a teacher or do self-study.

The programme is organised in a way that all members start learning the French language, and at the same time spend a very special week in a nice apartment (in the ‘Villa des Fleurs’) in natural surrondings. 
Later in the afternoon you can go for walks , go to the swimming-pool, go to the movies or play tennis. You can have dinner in the apartment or visit one of the restaurants in the village and close-by.
