Why do an Immersion course in France?

Written by on October 1, 2018 in Learn French, Tours in France

Do you speak a little French but want to learn how to speak with a real French accent and increase your knowledge of both the language and France whilst having a brilliant time? Or perhaps you’re a beginner and you would love to start your journey of learning French in a fun and authentic atmosphere.

A French immersion course is all about learning the language but it is also about getting to experience the culture, gastronomy, the wonderful sites and scenery that make learning so much more fun, interesting and memorable.

Finding the best immersion courses in France

There’s lots of choice but we love Lapont’s French language immersion courses in France for lots of reasons.

Great teachers: French teachers with international expertise and savoir-faire. The teachers are on hand all day along from morning to evening, so you can practice your French during all outings, meals and cultural activities

Small classes: With just 3-4 people in a class, you get real one to one teaching, loads of time to ask questions, practice and learn in a relaxed environment with a focus on communication.

Wow factor accommodation: Based in Burgundy, staying in a 17th century chateau with rustic libraries just perfect for study and chilling out. The ensuite bedrooms are stunning and spacious, the hospitality is warm and welcoming. Located in Burgundy in an area where exploring quaint villages is a joy, bikes are available from the chateau too. In-house chefs cook delicious dishes made with regional, seasonal produce to your liking and of course paired with local wines – when in France! The hosts are wonderful and much loved by the guests, who keep returning to the Chateau…


Learning in the real world: You’ll visit local sites such as private chateaux and vineyards. There are daily activities and cultural tours with experts; you’ll go to cheese farms, markets and meet local wine producers and sample their produce. You’ll dine at fabulous Michelin starred restaurants – what better way to practice the language you’re learning: “you’ll be saying formidable” like a local in no time and even use the word “incontournable” to describe the Lapont French Immersion experience!

Paris is an option: Add an extension to your trip and head to Paris for a 5 star stay where you queue nowhere as it’s star treatment all the way from visits to museums and cultural attractions to your quaint boutique hotel and fine dining experiences.

A holiday that can change your life

You’ll live and breathe in French for your week at Lapont’s terrific French immersion course. It’s a small group tour only with international guests who all have one thing in common – a passion for France and for learning and discovery. Catherine Alapont, a native French speaker and renowned linguist, has been organising tours for many years and really understands how to ensure that guests have the best time whilst learning. You won’t just go home speaking French better than you ever thought possible, you’ll make new friends and have the holiday of a life time.
