About SLImmersion



Bonjour ! My name is Celtina Masardo, SLImmersion manager, coordinator and teacher. I’m glad to organise for you the perfect programme of authentic immersion language homestay. Furthermore, you can prepare your stay with me thanks to my private French lessons via Skype.


I was teaching French for foreigners for more than 10 years in schools in Lyon and Switzerland but I wanted to offer more authentic, intensive stays that are different to other learning centres. In 2012, I set up SLImmersion and as my courses in Provence became known and very popular due to the success with students, I expanded in France with the help of local teachers, passionate about their region and the French language. Hence, I have personally selected each teacher with high certification and experience in teaching. Our programmes provide high quality stay in total immersion with private and adaptable courses: a combination of Learning, Culture, Exchange with the local, and Authenticity.”


Searching for a unique environment especially created to improve your French language in an authentic French setting? Beginner to Advanced level, from 18 to 80 years old, come with your friend, partner, family or simply you. As a student, you stay with the teacher and family in their home. You still take classes because that’s an important part of learning but you get to practice your French in a real life environment. Your motivation to learn French is for pleasure, work, preparation exam, or simply to discover the region, this personally tailored stay at the teacher’s residence will help you master the French language in no time! 



What could be more special and memorable than learning French on a truly exceptional  immersion course where you stay with a French teacher and its family in their home in lovely France. Now you have the opportunity to live the French life enjoying the food, discovering secret places – and learning French at the same time.
