Course fees - what's included
Our course fees are per person and include:

- three meals a day, excluding Saturday lunches and dinners, and Sunday lunches
- accommodation for 6 nights from Sunday to Saturday morning for a 1-week course
- for multiple week courses, as above, but with full accommodation
On our french immersion in France page you will notice that we include an option to share a room. If you are coming on your own and wish to make use of the shared room rate, we will make every effort to place you with a guest who has made a similar request. However, single room rates will apply if we are unable to pair you with another guest.
On our courses pages, deposits are shown in brackets after the course fees and are due at the time of booking. The balance is then due 4 weeks before the course start date. You can choose to pay as follows:
- online using our secure server OR
- by faxing us the following information:
- your full name, address, telephone number, the card number, the expiry date and the 3-digit security number on the reverse of the card OR
