2015 will be our twentieth year. 

What makes IF distinctive is being an integral part of village life.  We are welcomed back every year, like the swallows, as an essential part of the village summer. We have had a busy, enjoyable season welcoming a mix new students and ‘returners’. 

Talks from visiting local speakers have proved popular, as have our cookery classes. Two new familles d’accueil have been a delightful addition to our list of hosts in Suèvres. Michel Pigny joined our team and our students enjoyed both his patient teaching skills and his sense of Gallic humour.

We moved into new accommodation this summer, into the former Bureau de Poste, well situated in the heart of the village, opposite the Bar de la Place and next to the church. Our end-of–course dinners at La Bergerie have continued to be joyful occasions with good food, wine and conversation, ending with Françoise’s singing and Dédé’s playing.

It's good to have news from any former IF students so please keep those postcards, photos and emails coming! And don't hesitate to contact me if you want advice about our courses.

With best wishes

Our Immersion France 6-day residential courses, commencing on Saturdays, offer intensive immersion in the French language.

Students are accommodated with families well known to us, in the village.

We usually have around 12 students each week, split into two groups according to ability for most of the teaching.

Our tutors come from the Open University, London University or are local French speakers.

We can offer exam preparation with particular help for students facing oral exams.

Specialist group weeks can be arranged.

The price includes all accommodation, meals, teaching, materials, but not travel.
