Objectives and pedagogical content

Our language courses combine a variety of activities and exciting projects. They focus on verbal communication and take full advantage of the immersive environment in which young learners are. They allow each student to become more confident in order to communicate better in French.
Our discovery activities offer an exploration of our local environment through active and fun situations. Groups of students can choose which activities to do depending on what they feel like and on their language needs. For example, they can go on a scavenger hunt to discover the historic town center of Besançon, take an interactive tour of the house where Victor Hugo was born, discover the Besançon Citadel, visit the house where Louis Pasteur lived in Arbois, the
‘Saline Royale’ in Arc et Senans (a Unesco world heritage site), or a chocolate or cheese factory, etc.
During their stay, students can meet young French people their age who attend local schools (this can be done on request, but not during the French school holidays).


Weekend trips
Accompanied weekend trips can be organized on request.

For example, students can visit Paris, Lyon, Strasbourg or Geneva, discover the local regions of Bourgogne and FrancheComté, etc.


Students stay with a host family which provides half board
accommodation for a fully immersive experience.


The training courses are likely to be continued by distance learning, in particular due to changes in the health context.
