Once you’ve decided to put yourself in total French language immersion, you need to make another important decision. Which French Language School should you choose ?
Different factors must be taken into account when taking your decision.
A few tips to make the correct choice for your French language school in France
You first need to ask yourself what kind of French language courses in France you want to attend. For adult French courses you might want to make sure that you will not we surrounded by students that do not have the same motivations as you. We recommend that you investigate with each French language school the general motivations of most adult students.
Another aspect that you should look into consideration is where you want to learn French in France. Being in immersion in Paris or in “province” (meaning outside of Paris and its suburb) is not the same at all. And even if you decide to go for French language courses in “province”, each region of France is different, and moreover, if you want to select a French language school in a city or in the countryside is another factor that will increase your immersion experience.
The deeper you go into France, the better your French immersion will be.
One of the key aspect of your French language school is about who you are coming with you. If you are with your husband or wife, just by yourself, or even with your children is another element to make the good choice. Remember that full immersion means that everyone will be speaking French at all time, even during meals. Make sure that the persons coming with you are perfectly aware of the French immersion rules. If you are planning to come with your family, you will need to check if the French language school and its facilities are suitable for the rest of the family. Your French immersion experience need to be a good time for everyone.
