Student reviews about French immersion
Immersion stay with our teacher Claude | Paris
“I had a wonderful experience with Mme Gamelin. She and her husband took me and my husband to some very interesting places in Paris. They are two charming, cultured, and warm people.”
Immersion stay with our teacher Elisabeth | Paris
“My husband and I had a wonderful experience doing French Immersion with Elisabeth and Roland in Versailles. They are excellent hosts. Elisabeth is a very experienced and skilled teacher and Ron and I improved our French during our stay. Elisabeth and Roland’s apartment is very chic and very well set up for guests. We had our elegant bedroom with an adjoining bathroom. Versailles is very convenient to Paris and a perfect place to experience French life. Highly recommended..”
Immersion stay with our teacher Georgiana | Paris
“Georgiana and her family went out of their way to make the 1-week homestay for our 15-year-old son a special experience. The quality of the language teaching was high, with a personalized and productive approach that even included a bit of homework. The immersion experience around the excellent meals was educational, as was the experience of being able to participate in family life (e.g. reading to the lovely children in the family before bedtime).
We highly recommend a stay with Georgiana and SL Immersion, and believe we definitely made the right decision in enrolling our son in the program.”
Immersion stay with our teacher Sophie | Paris
“I would highly recommend SL Immersion. I spent a fantastic week with Sophie and her family. As an absolute beginner, it was hard work but this has given me the foundation and belief in myself to continue learning. The accommodation and food were excellent, and I was made to feel like part of the family for the week I stayed. Merci Beaucoup!!”
