FRENCH IMMERSION WEEK-END FOR BEGINNERS
I am happy to propose this week-end for those who have always wanted to learn French and are complete beginners.
Between Friday 20th September evening and Sunday 23rd September afternoon, you will get the equivalent of 10 hours of formal tuition in a small group, interspersed with games, activities and even a touch of healthy French cooking!
By the end of the week-end, you will know how to:
Introduce yourself and others
Speak about yourself (where you live, what you do, your family, your interests)
Count to a hundred! (exchange phone numbers, buy an item)
Recognise times of the day, meals, tell the time, the season, ask directions.
Speak about the environment you are in (The sea, the venue, the market)
Describe what you are doing when you are cooking an item.
French words for food appreciation during meal times
Read a simple child story, play games in French, sing a song!
Use basic vocabulary, verbs and adjectives and prepositions, at beginners level.
Here are my chosen French Keywords for the week-end:
Français: From Friday evening to Sunday, we will endeavour to use as much French as possible with explanations in English, so don’t be nervous. However the more you hear it the more you will remember it.
Beauté: You will be hosted in the luxury apartments at Hoi by the Sea, at the Entrance north, surrounded by the beauty of the sand and sea.
Convivialité: This is a relaxing way of learning, playing and sharing, in a friendly and non judgemental environment.
Créativité: With food, voice, new ideas, fun and games.
Santé: Although the food will have French names, attention will be given to dietary requirements, i.e. vegetarian, gluten-free, and all healthy for your mind and body, guaranteed!
Cost of the week-end: $600 person, $1,000 per couple.
This will include: Accommodation for 2 nights
2 breakfasts, 2 dinners
All tuition, games, handouts.
For lunches we will walk to the local organic market and each participant will buy some ingredients to prepare the meals.
Games will include, pétanque (weather permitting), board/card and classroom games in french.
Looking forward to sharing this special week-end with you,
I am a native speaker of French and have been teaching French at primary and high-school levels for over 20 years.
