French and Walking

Embracing nature

Week courses. 25 hours a week. For all levels.

Another way to learn French, and a very effective one! For this one week program, we take you on guided hikes around the Bassin d’Arcachon. Your whole body is in action, while learning French. The results are amazing.

Our teachers have developed special phonics, grammar, memory and conversation exercises that we do on the go, while enjoying wonderful views of the Bay.

A different walking tour, each lasting two to four hours, is proposed every day. You discover the Bassin d’Arcachon in all its variety: dunes and wild beaches, lakes and rivers, pine and oak forests, salt marshes, oyster villages…

Back at the school, we have a classroom session every day to practise writing. It helps to integrate the vocabulary and grammar learned during the hike. Each student gets customised written notes, to fix the new notions and continue learning.

This course is particularly recommended for improving speaking skills and gaining confidence in French.
