Testimonial about Online Courses

"Before this year of the pandemic, the best immersion school I have attended the Ecole Des Trois Ponts. I attended two times and each time my french improved. Now, of course, it is not possible to attend the school. What is possible is online lessons by skype or zoom.
I needed a challenge and decided to try the online program. It has been very rewarding. Having a personal french coach has been, tremendously, helped me with my weak areas. So, if you have a love of the french language and want to grow, I encourage you to start the online program".

Countryside walks as an Immersion Program in France

New Activity at the Ecole des 3 Ponts

Make no mistake about it, hiking in France is experiencing growing popularity with many enthusiasts. In addition to the pleasures of discovering the bounty of the region, walking remains an excellent activity for maintaining good health.

 In the Loire district alone, there are nearly 7800 km of hiking paths on 264 trails.

Around the towns of Roanne and Riorges, we count no less than 143 walking trails which makes our region a paradise for hikers. Numerous circuits reveal a varied palette of countryside valleys, woodlands and vineyards. Some of the trails follow a portion of the Chemin de Saint Jacques de Compostelle, a large portion of which has been honored as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In our region each year, thousands of pilgrims motivated by diverse reasons, follow the steps of their predecessors on this ancestral route and pass through charming villages such as Charlieu, St. Jean St. Maurice…

Last year, the Roannaise region re-delineated all the paths and just published a new hiking guide that details walks of 11 to 25 km. What about discovering this bracing Immersion Program in France ?

Following this trend and responding to a growing demand by our clients, in 2016 the team at the Ecole des Trois Ponts is inaugurating a French Language and Countryside Walks class. Among the team, Valérie and Laetitia are themselves enthusiastic hikers. This session is accessible for everyone, whatever your fitness level. The walks can vary from 6 to 10 km and will lead you to discover the beauty of the Loire countryside with lovely vistas overlooking the Roannaise plain and the Loire gorges.

This activity will encourage you to express yourself in French with targeted support to enhance the knowledge you have acquired in class.
