At last summer has really arrived! We have had a long damp spring this year, not what we expect here in Provence, but this week the sun is shining, summer linens are making their appearance and the countryside is alive with poppies and other wild flowers. This morning during my early walk I saw the first cherry pickers in the neighbouring orchard. This is the moment when the markets are teeming with all the new season produce and it is a joy to walk through them on a summer morning. We’ve already had the asparagus and strawberries, now it will be the cherries, the wonderful stone fruits and our fantastic sun-ripened summer vegetables.
We still have a few places left on courses throughout June and July so why not come and join us. You will find excellent teachers, great students and a passion for Provence. Our Discover Provence weeks help you to explore the hidden side of Provence, away from all the tourist traps (though we do include one or two of our favourite ones!).
Our French Immersion Courses include morning tuition, accommodation, lunches, excursion and many other elements. Afternoon classes are optional and are offered as one-to-one sessions. Great if there are particular language points you would like to raise with your teacher or if you have specific needs in your language learning, for example a particular set of language skills for a job. We also continue to offer our Individual Immersion courses. Do remember that our courses offer scope and possibilities for learners of different levels and with different goals in mind. These days we are delighted to welcome a new generation of French learners. Over the last few years many of those who have joined us have been at the beginning of their professional lives and have been interested in improving their language skills to improve job opportunities. For a very personal view of a language course with Language In Provence do have a look at the article written by the wonderful Australian artist Nellie Crawford who joined us for a four week course last autumn. She has written about her experiences in “The West Australian’ – just follow this link: http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/travel/a/-/travel/13126756/brush-with-provence Look forward to hearing from you….
