Burgundy Immersion Retreat 2024: Unlocking the Benefits of a Week in France with us

Dear Live and Learn community,

Imaginez ceci: Une semaine nichée au cœur de la Bourgogne, entourée de vignobles vallonnés, de châteaux historiques et du doux rythme de la vie française. Notre voyage d'Immersion en Français en septembre 2024 n'est pas simplement une escapade ; c'est une expérience transformative qui apporte une myriade d'avantages.

Picture this: A week nestled in the heart of Burgundy, surrounded by rolling vineyards, historic châteaux, and the gentle rhythm of French life. Our French Immersion Retreat in September 2024 is not just a getaway; it's a transformative experience that brings a myriad of benefits and is the key to unlocking a world of linguistic and cultural richness.

Highlights of Our Journey:

  1. Language Proficiency Acceleration: Immerse yourself in the French language through daily interactions. Studies have shown that immersive experiences significantly accelerate language learning. In Burgundy, you'll not only learn the language but live it, boosting your confidence and proficiency in record time.  En Bourgogne, vous n'apprendrez pas seulement la langue, mais vous la vivrez, renforçant votre confiance et votre compétence en un temps record.

  2. Cultural Fluency: Living in Burgundy means being surrounded by centuries-old traditions, art, and customs. Engage in cultural excursions, visit local markets, and interact with the friendly locals. This first-hand exposure ensures you not only speak French but also understand the nuances of its cultural context, making your language skills more authentic and versatile. Cette exposition de première main garantit que vous ne parlez pas seulement français, mais comprenez aussi les subtilités de son contexte culturel, rendant vos compétences linguistiques plus authentiques et polyvalentes. Voici une petite vidéo amusante qui explique les gestes français - le genre de choses que vous remarquerez lors de votre semaine avec nous!

3. Confidence Building: Our program is designed to encourage active participation. From conversing with locals during guided tours to expressing yourself in cooking classes, you'll find your confidence growing day by day. By the end of the week, you'll feel comfortable navigating real-life situations in French, a skill that goes beyond the classroom. À la fin de la semaine, vous vous sentirez à l'aise pour naviguer dans des situations de la vie réelle en français, une compétence qui va au-delà de la salle de classe.

4. Culinary Delights and Social Bonding: The art of French cuisine is not just about food; it's a social experience. Through culinary adventures, you'll not only savor the flavors of Burgundy but also learn the language of food and dining etiquette. Shared meals with fellow participants and locals create lasting bonds, enriching your overall cultural experience.

5. Lifelong Connections: Joining our immersion retreat means becoming part of a community that shares a passion for language and culture. Forge connections with like-minded individuals, both fellow participants and locals. These connections can extend beyond the retreat, creating a network of friends and language partners for years to come.

6. Personal Growth and Adventure: Stepping out of your comfort zone and into the enchanting landscapes of Burgundy is a journey of personal growth. Whether it's trying your hand at French dance or navigating the local markets, each day offers new opportunities for adventure and self-discovery.

7. Unplug and Rejuvenate: Escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and immerse yourself in the tranquility of our manor. The retreat provides a perfect blend of learning and relaxation, allowing you to absorb the language and culture at your own pace. La semaine en immersion offre un mélange parfait d'apprentissage et de détente, vous permettant d'absorber la langue et la culture à votre propre rythme.

Hortense and Marie-Anne

Here is what some of our September 2023 clients have to say about their experience:

Marie-Anne and Hortense became family. Their attention to detail and emphasis on an authentic French experience was remarkable. The excursions were short & sweet with plenty of relaxation built into our days. All of the food was well planned and delicious; from a private chef, learning to make French cuisine myself, or eating a wonderful meal out. This is a trip I will never forget and am truly grateful they were by my side.

A wonderful week in Burgundy! The villa, food and wine were outstanding as were the excursions. However what was even more special was Hortense and Marie-Anne…their knowledge and attention to detail made all the difference. They were dedicated to ensuring everyone got the most out of the week-plus they’re really fun!
