Apologies to students, friends and followers for the long absence of updated news from Language In Provence. No excuses, just a busy schedule, lots of courses and a new learning year to welcome in.
Already this year we have had some very enjoyable weeks as part of our Discover Provence programme. Roaming the Rosés with our wine guide Abdel has been fun with visits to amazing places like the Chateau de Beaucastel in Chateauneuf du Pape, one of the famous domaines of the region. We have also managed to see some of our favourites – the Carrières de Lumières at Les Baux de Provence (a wonderful projected exhibition of the works of Klimt), as well as some of our favourite gardens and villages.
Francis our host is continuing to entertain his student guests. He has rethought aperitif hour this year and tempts us with the most amazing array of flavours, each displayed on its own little spoon.
Last night a big basket of fresh cherries awaited our students, freshly picked from his family’s orchards. These little fruits bring real sunshine at the end of May. We have had windy, cloudy weather this week so they have been a welcome ray of delight!

We have many more visits planned as well as a full programme of French learning in the months to come. We have some availability for June and July and a little for September and October. If you are interested in lavender, gardens, Van Gogh, glorious villages, stunning landscapes, local life and amazing food and wine combined with really enjoyable French classes please get in touch with me and we’ll see what we can do. And if you live locally, are visiting the region or only have a limited amount of time you are welcome to join us for classes only.
