Bordeaux is a port city known for it’s wine and beautiful architecture.

During this retreat we will be taking advantage of this for our lessons as well as many other outings to put our language skills to use.

The classroom training each day includes activities which cover speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, naturally including grammar and vocabulary.

The meals and additional activities allow us to place emphasis on practical communication to build up your vocabulary and help to develop fluency and confidence.

As with every retreat, the entire day is spent together. Thanks to this continuous interaction, you will considerably speed up your command of the language and get permanent and measurable results after this week of immersion.
