« j’ai passé 15 jours magnifiques chez Fanfan. »


“Elle m’a aidé beaucoup avec mon français ! Et nous avons eu beaucoup d’aventures ensemble.”

Sarah

 

 

« She integrates the student into everyday life and in the French culture »


“I spent three weeks of private lessons with Maryse. Two comfortable rooms await the students. Maryse is a true ‘Cordon Bleu’ and she prepared me different specialties of the region. The medieval town and the river L’Armançon delight me extraordinarily. The exchange of views on current events helps me a lot to improve oral expression and gain confidence.”

Thank you for everything ! My time in Belvedere with Benedicte and her husband was superb. The mountains are beautiful, the house is really comfortable and pretty and the welcome at Bénédicte was exactly what I needed. In addition, Bénédicte is so good with reading. Thank you.

My stay at Fanfan's was just what I was expecting. She is a very caring host and takes care of her students 24/7, while being always open for a conversation. Continuously practicing my French allowed me to get more confident and genuinely improve my conversation skills and Fanfan tailored a program based on the specific exam that I am preparing. All of that in addition to sightseeing and exploring made this experience a perfect profitable time!

I really loved it! my experience with SL Immersion has been perfect, since the beggining while programming the course with Celtina. She is so kind and patience. The course is so flexible that I could adjust it perfectly to my needs. My two homestays (Lille- Caroline and Paris-Isabelle) were wonderful. Beautiful places and hosts. The classes were very good. You can feel everything is done with passion and it is definetity the best way to improve, a combination of individual classes plus conversations with your teachers and of course enjoying France at the same time.

This was my first linguistic stay in South France and I had a wonderful experience that exceeded my expectation. I would like to express my deep gratitude towards my host family, Beatrice (Teacher) and Wilfred. Thank you very much for their warm welcome and the delicious home-made Provence-style meals were remarkable. The programme was designed in consultation with Beatrice and I enjoyed a diversity of activities and personalised one-on-one French classes. Beatrice is so nice, encouraging and intelligent (as she could always understand what I attempted to express with my limited French). After the trip, I gained more confidence in speaking French and my listening / communication skill in French also progressively improved. The homestay location is convenient for doing day-trips in nearby regions in my free time. I love the beautiful hilltop villages, local markets and wine & cheese in South France. I would highly recommend an immersion stay at Beatrice’s home!

My one week stay in Paris was lovely. My hosts were so welcoming and they had lots of experience so I felt quite at home. The one to one lessons with my teacher were great. She is an amazing teacher who is extremely knowledgable. I used the format to practise for my upcoming French literature topics at university, and my teacher definitely helped lots with both the language-based and literary exercises we did. Another highlight of my trip were the excursions to two museums. Again, it was great to be with hosts who knew so much about Paris and French culture. I would especially recommend this experience with SLimmersion to people who are curious about cultural/ historical/political aspects of Paris or France in general, because Claude and Jean-Paul are amazing guides. Thank you to the team at SLimmersion for providing this experience :))

Benedicte was so delightful! I arrived in Nice and she was at the airport to pick me up. We traveled to the most delightful area north of Nice in the mountains to a small village of Belvedere. I could not have asked for a better home or place to arrive. In addition to having fabulous meals, I was treated to the fabulous company of Benedicte. I loved the small villages and the ability to begin my journey in France is a very relaxing way. We hiked, we swam, we visited the nearby villages. We also were able to study one on one to help me with the french language. I highly recommend Benedicte. There was nothing she could have done to make my visit more complete.

My husband and I learned SO much from Françoise! She is a patient and so kind instructor, very clear and with excellent materials and games to help us learn. AND she took us to many beautiful places in the Luberon and cooked excellent Provençal meals. We would love to come back!

We enjoyed our week stay with Françoise in Fountain de Vaucluse. Françoise is a very generous person who took care of us very well. She is very patient with her students and makes sure that they get plenty of practice speaking and writing French. I recommend her highly.

Really enjoyed the experience with Sl Immersion. I improved my French during the two weeks I was in Aix de Provence and also had cultural outings tailored to my interests. The process to register was seamless and professional and the coordinator Celtina was very easy to work with getting me signed up. The level of teaching with my teacher Christine was also tailored to my personal needs and was well paced. A well-rounded program for someone who wants to combine language learning with getting to know and experience French culture and life. I wish I could have stayed on longer!

I highly recommend S.L.Immersion. Celtina was very helpful making the arrangements. My Professeur Laurence was marvelous - she welcomed me warmly with inspired cuisine and infinite patience. She found the right balance between talking and listening, formal instruction and exploring the delightful countryside of Provence: les marchés, ruines romaines, villages perchés. The prices are fair for the personalized instruction, but probably too high for some younger students who would profit the most.

SL Immersion is a great company. They have been trustworthy, responsive, courteous, professional and helpful. My homestay immersion experience could not have been better. The home I stayed in was lovely and the teacher was excellent. My language skills definitely improved by the end of my stay. I was more relaxed and spoke more smoothly with better use of vocabulary and grammar. I highly recommend this program.

I am a student and paid for the trip. So honest review: It's great but it is not for everyone. Thoughts: If you are a pure beginner, I am not sure full immersion will be good for you. It is a financial investment and not a small one. So unless you have plenty of money, maybe start first with self-studies and watching French movies.For those intermediate without friends in France or those who need to prepare for an exam or need it for work: I can recommend. Teachers are very flexible to your needs and you need to be clear on what you want to get out of the days or weeks with the immersion.Everyone in this company that I met and two teachers are incredibly friendly, welcoming, warm and wonderful people <3
