YOUR HOME STAY FRENCH IMMERSION IN BRITTANY
Hello, my name is Perrine. I am a French teacher with more than 10 years experience in teaching French as a foreign language to adults. Having lived in Brittany for a few years, as well as in several other regions of France and abroad, I love to introduce people to this magnificent part of France, which is both wild and welcoming. Passionate about teaching French, I love to share my passion for the language and its culture. I believe the best way to do so is to live a total immersion experience, sharing with you the experiences of everyday life in France.
My house is located in a quiet and pleasant area. Not far from the centre of Quimper, with its cafés, creperies, cinemas and restaurants, you can experience the French way of life in Brittany.
You will have your own room, with a large double bed. You will share the rest of the house with me and… my cat! My house is non-smoking but you can smoke in the south-facing garden if you wish.
We will share meals together and I will be happy to adapt them to your tastes. I like to cook simple dishes based on vegetables, meat and fish. I also like to introduce students to typical Brittany specialities such as seafood, fish and pancakes.
During your stay, we will have the opportunity to go to the market to discover the local seasonal products, which we can cook together.
LEARN FRENCH LANGUAGE IN BRITTANY
I draw on my teaching experience to provide tailor-made French courses. My method is based on the needs of the students and on my interaction with them. Thus, we can work on both oral and written skills through various activities and exercises. That is without forgetting the guided visits of the area, when you can immerse yourself entirely in French.
I teach at all levels, from beginner to advanced. Our French lessons will take place in the morning in the living room, or in the garden if the weather is fine! You can come alone, or with your friend or partner who will be welcome to participate in the lessons.
Because the French love food, you will also enjoy
Discover amazing French sites, your teacher as a guide
According to your leisure time, there are many activities to do
Your stay is also discovering French culture while relaxing
I will be your guide to discover Quimper and its region. Quimper is located 20 minutes by car from the beach, and not far from the magnificent port of Douarnenez, the walled city of Concarneau, or the wild coast of the Pointe de La Torche. We will be able to discover the vast traditional Breton heritage, its history and gastronomy.
We can explore the typical old town of Locronan, stroll through the cobbled streets of Quimper, enjoy a coffee in the cathedral square or enjoy the sun on the towpath along the river that runs through the city. Our program will be tailored to meet your needs and preferences.
