Immersion Courses In France – What they said

Primary Teachers

Back in work after a fantastic week in Lyon. I have to say it’s one of the best things I have done in recent years. I learned so much and have come away with great ideas for the classroom. The tutors were wonderful teachers and kept us going non stop. I loved Lyon and really got a great feel for the city. Et bien sûr le français! Après une semaine j’ai fait beaucoup de progrès et gagné en confiance en parlant la langue.

I took part in the Primary Teacher’s French Immersion Course in Salignac over the summer, and had an absolutely fantastic experience. The course was so well structured, the teaching and learning activities were excellent, and the tutors were so helpful and enthusiastic.

Firstly I just wanted to say what a fantastic time I had on your course… I had a brilliant time and learned loads. It was really well organised and felt totally at ease so well done for all your planning and preparation. I also wanted to say how fantastic the teachers were, they pitched everything just right and made all the lessons really interesting and engaging. If you could pass on my thanks to them that would be great.

Just a wee note to say thank you so much for all your hard work organising last week’s course. It was just brilliant and I have come back really motivated to get on teaching. Aside from all the brilliant French teaching, it has restored my faith in the country and its people. I have also made some lovely new friends to boot!! Thank you so much again; you really are a little gem.

The week was incredibly useful and really inspiring. A great refresher for someone who has been teaching for over 20 years. The resources are all so easy to use with the famous CD Rom and I am keen to get back into the classroom to use them.

Je vous envoie ce courriel pour vous dire combien j’ai apprécié le stage à Lyon. Ce stage a été une expérience unique qui m’a enrichi au niveau professionnel aussi bien qu’au niveau personnel. Les apports pour ma profession sont évidents mais le contact et l’échange humain ont constitué aussi un des points forts de ce court séjour en France. Les mots qui me revenaient toujours à l’esprit quand j’étais à Lyon étaient: profiter et partager. Le groupe était très soudé et très motivé. Tout le monde a pris beaucoup de plaisir à parler en français et à apprendre davantage sur la culture et sur la langue. Je vous remercie donc pour votre initiative.

I had a wonderful week in Lyon, I came back with an amount of ideas which I hope to use in the classroom over the coming months and years.

Please accept my belated thanks for all you did from your side to make sure that all the arrangements for the Salignac course went smoothly and that it was a fantastic experience. Please also forward my personal thanks to the tutors for being fantastic teachers and brilliant hosts.

I wanted to thank you for all your help and advice when I was applying to participate in the French course in Lyon in July. I believe you organised the whole programme and I can tell you genuinely that it was a brilliant success. Thank you very much. I really gained a lot from the course, not just professionally but also personally and I will recommend it to others without any hesitation.
