So Imagine This Scene

It’s 1pm after a morning of wandering perched villages, buying souvenirs and taking a gazillion photos.

You’re now sitting on a café terrace enjoying a delicious lunch and sipping a chilled glass of rosé whilst enjoying the much-enjoyed French obsession of people watching.

Above you clear blue skies and around you there are pale yellow-washed walled houses with blue shutters and windows filled with geranium pots.

Further along the street, you can spot a few lazy cats sunning themselves on a doorway.

You can also hear the old men chatting nearby as they partake in a local game of pétanque.

You can smell the delicious scent from the bakery next door as they open the oven to unload the trays of freshly baked croissants.

It combines:

  • Visiting the beautiful region of Provence
  • Experiencing life with locals
  • Travelling with like-minded lovers of all things French
  • Immersing yourself fully in the culture
  • Improving your French communication

Come with us to truly immerse yourself in France

French Learning in Provence

When you’re surrounded by France, French comes much easier.

We will seek out ways to expose you to many facets of the French language and give you plenty of chances to listen and practice too.

Your learning will, of course, be by native French tutors who share the belief in the French language being fun and accessible to all. They want you to learn, to improve fast and they want to share their culture with you.

French Cultural Activities in Provence

The core of language use is in authentic, meaningful interaction.

On this linguistic trip to France, you will have just that.

In meeting locals and soaking up the wonders of this stunning region, you will also get to partake in numerous outings. Here’s a little taste of our activities:

  • Wine tasting at a local château
  • Provençal cooking class
  • Full day in Cannes and in the islands of Lerins
  • Grasse, the world’s “perfume capital”
  • Fun art class
  • Walk or pedal-boat around the St. Cassien Lake
  • Provençal villages and Traditional artisan markets
  • Scenic outings to castles, churches, museums
  • …and more…
Your Accommodation and Meals in Provence

THIS is just like having a home away from home, plus being in the South of France, it can’t get much better than what awaits you.

We will stay in small villages around the breathtaking Canton de Fayence.

It will feel like living inside a postcard… Get ready to fall even more in love with France!

All delicious meals – breakfast, lunch, and dinners – are also included in the package price. We will be taking you to some beautiful eateries to sample dishes we adore!

This is not for you if…
  • You are a self-confessed control-freak and don’t enjoy ‘going with the flow’ even on holidays
  • You have no interest in learning the language to more fully experience what France has to offer.
  • You get anxious when you’re not in your own environment.
  • You don’t like trying new foods (don’t worry though – snails and tripes won’t be part of our French staple diet).
  • You’re not really interested in meeting new people.
This is perfect for you if …
  • You decide to take your life out of auto-pilot and challenge yourself to a different kind of experience.
  • You like to have a ‘home base’ when you’re overseas rather than packing and unpacking your bags every day.
  • You’re keen to see the best Provence has to offer with the helping hand from a local who can help you plan the finer details before you even leave Australian soil.
  • You are after deeper authentic connections with real people not just a passing bonjour to the hotel concierge.
  • You want to greatly improve your French with other like-minded French enthusiasts.
  • You know deep down that you are worth this investment in yourself to get away from it all and have this unique experience.

    My time studying with French Speak has been really beneficial to my study of French.

    In particular, the one-on-one learning helped me to identity the areas which needed particular attention. I also found that having one consistent tutor helped me gain confidence.

    This assisted me in passing my DELF exam.

    I would recommend individual lessons of this kind to anybody seeking to improve their French.

    Friendly and knowledgeable, Devy has helped me grasp the basics of French and take me to an intermediate level!

    My goal was to learn so I could communicate better with my in-laws and it has worked, they always compliment me on my progress…

    I recommend her classes to everyone who is daunted about learning a new language.

    Her classes are always fun and very interesting.

    I’ve been trying to study French on and off since school, but I’ve found French Speak to make the journey much more enjoyable.

    Focus is applied to the areas of most use, ie; numbers, directions, introductions, and lots of practical applications.

    Devy is passionate about her subject and makes it fun and easy!

    I will be continuing on without a doubt.
