Language courses - Luberon - Viens

Learn French in Provence whilst discovering the regional cultural heritage and improving your French with a specialist in the teaching of French and Provençal history. Our school is located around Apt, (Viens & Saignon), two of the idyllic Luberon villages. 

Our small classes allow us to respond to your needs individually, while also maintaining a friendly, low pressure atmosphere that is conducive to learning.

If you prefer to learn French within the privacy of your home (or rental accommodation) we will design a program that suits your needs and schedule in the following locations (or within close proximity of) Apt, Cavaillon, Lourmarin, Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, Avignon, Manosque, Forcalquier, Sault...

Our teaching technique is based on the concept of immersion. Thus, our teachers and partners will speak French with you, as much as possible, from the commencement of your course.

We offer cooking classes, reading groups, conversation classes with specific themes Everything is an excuse to speak French in different context to provide the opportunity for every day french language experience!

We welcome adults, teenagers, and children of all levels of learning. Classes are limited to 4 students: courses are individualised - “bespoke” - for each student's needs and expectations.

We also help expatriates desiring to become a part of French life; professionals who need to speak a specific vocabulary and French language proficiency at their job; students of all ages or simply people in love with our romantic language! ("The language of Molière" and many other great writers throughout history!)

Why learn French? Your eyes and heart open to a country and it’s people when you learn the language of its soul. Learning about a country through language is a sharing experience for the teacher and the student; it becomes "une invitation au voyage"!

Let the Luberon enchant you and fuel your desire to learn French in Provence! Bienvenue!
