5 raisons de faire un séjour linguistique en France

Vous apprenez le français ? Vous envisagez de faire un séjour linguistique en France ? Vous hésitez à franchir le pas ?

Dans cet article je vous donne 5 bonnes raisons de réaliser un séjour linguistique en France ! Embarquez, l’aventure vous attend !

séjour linguistique en France


Premier avantage : L’immersion linguistique.

Eh oui, une fois en France vous serez plongé dans un monde totalement francophone, ce qui aura un effet particulièrement positif sur votre cerveau. En effet, le fait de perdre ses repères va forcer ce dernier à s’adapter, l’apprentissage de la langue se fera donc beaucoup plus rapidement. C’est pourquoi plusieurs professeurs de langue conseillent de se créer une « bulle » dans laquelle vous pouvez simuler cette immersion linguistique. Par exemple vous pouvez mettre votre téléphone en français, écouter la radio et la télévision française sur internet, etc. Tout ceci contribue à forcer le cerveau à enregistrer avec une plus grande efficacité la langue. Ainsi, lors d’un séjour linguistique, vous serez entièrement plongé dans un monde francophone, ce qui aura pour effet un apprentissage beaucoup plus rapide.

Conseil : ne soyez pas tenté de vous tourner vers vos compatriotes, sinon votre cerveau aura beaucoup plus de mal à s’adapter !

Deuxième avantage : L’immersion culturelle.

Apprendre une langue, c’est aussi s’intéresser à la culture locale ! Durant vos cours, de nombreux thèmes seront abordés afin d’enrichir vos connaissances en civilisation française. Le fait d’étudier certaines périodes historiques, le cinéma, la gastronomie, la littérature, les célébrités et même plusieurs coutumes et traditions vous aidera réellement à penser comme les français. Chaque langue est unique et transmet une vision du monde différente, vous avez donc l’occasion d’apprendre à réfléchir autrement. Certaines études démontrent même que les langues influencent l’humeur et la personnalité !

Conseil : Il est quasiment toujours possible de choisir un hébergement en famille d’accueil, optez pour cette formule afin d’en apprendre plus sur la manière de vivre des français !

Troisième avantage : Partez à la rencontre des natifs !

Vous aurez bien évidemment l’occasion de faire connaissance avec des français. Le fait de développer un réseau social est excellent pour vous faire progresser considérablement dans votre apprentissage. Vous apprendrez le vocabulaire de la vie courante ainsi que de nombreuses expressions ! Si possible, sortez et participez à un maximum d’activités (sport, musées, bars…). Ainsi, vous allez rencontrer des gens avec qui vous partagez des passions communes, ce sera donc plus facile de nouer des liens d’amitié !

Bonus : si vous êtes célibataire, qui sait, peut-être allez-vous rencontrer un(e) petit(e)-ami(e) français(e) ! Idéal pour pratiquer, non ?

Quatrième avantage : Vivez une expérience incroyable !

Lorsque vous choisissez une école de langue réputée, vous avez la garantie de passer un séjour inoubliable ! Pourquoi cela ? Plusieurs raisons :

  • Vous allez bénéficier d’une excellente qualité de cours, vous apprendrez donc plus vite.
  • L’ambiance est toujours très agréable, c’est un endroit idéal pour faire connaissance avec des apprenants du monde entier.
  • Des activités sont quasiment toujours proposées, vous aurez donc l’occasion de découvrir les plus beaux endroits à proximité de la ville. Veillez à choisir une école qui propose ce genre d’excursions !
  • Le tourisme ! La France est le pays le plus visité du monde, vous aurez l’occasion de parcourir ce beau pays !

Conseil : si je devais recommander une école en particulier, je choisirais French in Normandy à Rouen, la capitale de la Normandie. Outre le fait qu’il s’agisse d’une école de haute qualité, garantissant un apprentissage rapide, elle est très bien située géographiquement. Vous y aurez l’occasion de découvrir Paris, le Mont Saint-Michel, les falaises normandes ainsi que le centre-ville de Rouen ! De plus, la Normandie est l’une des régions les plus célèbres de France !

Mont-Saint Michel

Cinquième avantage : Une occasion de passer les examens officiels, le DELF ou le DALF !

Il vous sera beaucoup plus facile de passer un examen officiel reconnaissant mondialement votre niveau de langue. Les écoles de langues sont des endroits où il est possible de passer ce type d’épreuve. Décrocher un tel certificat apporterait un sérieux atout à votre CV !

De plus, si vous validez un niveau B2 ou C1, vous aurez même l’occasion de pouvoir faire vos études en France. Les écoles de langues étant souvent partenaires avec des établissements d’enseignement supérieur, vous n’aurez aucun mal à vous insérer dans le cursus universitaire français. Plusieurs écoles et universités sont très bien réputées internationalement.

Le football c’est l’école de la vie… Albert Camus ⚽️🏃🏾

football ecole de la vie5 Groupement fle schools supported a competition organised by the French linguistic attaché in Spain, Manuela Ferrero Pinto. The French Ambassador, M Yves Saint-Geours in Spain was the guest of honour at the Institut Français de Madrid at the ceremony to give out the prizes to enthusiastic young learners of French.

The national competition, to celebrate the anniversary of French author Albert Camus’ Nobel Prize award, was organised by the Institut Français in Spain. Existential author Camus was 44 when he received the award and had been a first class footballer until tuberculosis cut short his sporting career.

Groupement fle schools Accent Français , CMAF, Cap d’ail, French in Normandy, Institut de Touraine and LSF all supported the initiative giving a week of French lessons to winning teams of 6 from various schools throughout Spain. 

Said Groupement fle spokesperson Eleri Maitland, who was present at the ceremony on behalf of GFLE, “Groupement fle is proud to partner the Institut Français in Spain. Our job is to encourage and support initiatives that put the French language centre stage. Naturally, as the number one network of French language schools in France, it is our role to work closely with French government institutions to encourage and promote the French language. We are delighted to have been instrumental in this fantastic and very successful project and we look forward to welcoming the winners to France this year“.


You are learning because you want to learn | Student Blog

Let’s see how Alan is getting on at French in Normandy with this latest update…


Well its getting a little tougher now! We have begun to look at ‘au present simple’ and ‘passe compose’ – in other words present and past tense! When they start discussing ‘conjugasion’ and reflexive verbs, I struggle. I never learnt this in English let alone in French! However, I’m not feeling too bad about it as although it is taking some concentration it is beginning to register slowly in my very small and very old brain!

The other interesting change is the way that within only two weeks this small international fraternity of students begin to mould into small friendships. Mind you, every now and then someone new appears – a new starter, and someone disappears – either finished and off home, or worse for one’s self-esteem they have been moved to a different group, presumably because they are too good for us beginners. At first, you feel a little piqued and then as Eleri, our seat of all wisdom, remarked “Well, how long did it take you to learn your first language?”. You then realise it’s not a competition here. You are learning because you want to learn, and you learn at whatever pace is right for you. It relaxes you when you accept this.

Every morning there is a little congregation outside the entrance to the school that greet each other warmly with little smiles of embarrassment in their new-found French. Each day there are new phrases added to the vocabulary that we all try out on each other, and if you happen to say something not quite correct to someone who is a couple of groups ahead of you, they gently smile and educate you in the correct way – regardless of age by the way, the other day a 17-year-old Japanese girl corrected my pronunciation, thank you Mina! Its all done with the best intentions and a far cry from the bullying aggressive attitude of my inner-city school gate; oh so, so, so long ago!

Beautiful Normandy Countryside

It’s quite sweet and makes you feel part of one big, probably slightly, dysfunctional family.

As for life ‘en France’, is it becoming easier and more familiar? Peut-être (perhaps). I visited Fontainebleau, south-west of Paris last week-end. It’s worth a visit for the palace alone. Anyway, I was quite confident as I checked in to my hotel, announcing in a strong voice in French that they should have a reservation for me? Trouble is, one should also remember that the quicker and more confident one sounds the quicker and more complex they respond. C’est une problem. This left me feeling a little awkward and embarrassed as I had to ask them to repeat their question ‘lentements, s’il vous plait!’. They then glance slightly despairingly at the heavens and respond with near perfect English, which of course does not help me improve my French one little bit. I have to say, in a mild defence of the majority of my countrymen, it is quite difficult to learn a foreign language when you are British because a) which one do you choose? And b) everyone by now speaks near perfect English and cannot be bothered to help educate us. I don’t blame them, but it does sometimes get a little frustrating, but then the whole of the French nation is not here to teach me French. Damn my arrogance!

So another week over. I’ll keep you posted on progress.

First week back at school – Part Deux | Student Blog

We’re back with Alan, from Stratford upon Avon, Home of William Shakespeare. Alan is a young 57 year old student who has come to Rouen to learn French before a) embarking on a 1000 mile horse trek on the Route D’Artagnan through France and into Italy and b) with a view to living in France permanently. Read on to learn more about his first week as a student at FIN…


Salut, everyone! It’s now one week since I started at French in Normandy. I confess to being really tired at the end of each days lessons which seem to fly by. For the first time ever I have been able to understand NUMBERS in French! I always used to know how to count to about fifty, after that I could never work it out but I now know, understand and can calculate the numbers. That said, when you finally manage to understand how they build the numbers up in the language it seems very bizarre as an Englishman. Basically, they say for example; for seventy-seven – sixty plus seventeen! Which is soixante-dix-sept. Eighty is four times twenty – Quatre-vingt and ninety is four time twenty plus ten, in otherwords Quatre-vingt dix! I’ll let you work out what sixty nine is! Now I bet that has confused you all but our excellent Professeur, the slightly mad Viktor, makes it seem so normal and easy. Literally within one lesson I could understand and work out the numbers and even understand them when they were being said to me. Brilliant.

This week has also explained simple stuff like asking for someone’s email address and business card. Where they live? What they do for a living? Do they have a mobile number? Basically all the things you need when you want to start to exist and talk to someone in France.

What I think is very cool about the way we are taught is that it all comes mixed up within building the conversation. You learn to listen, to pronounce; then get to read it and then write it. By the time you have done that the phrases and words you have learned stay stuck in your brain without you realising it.

The best bit is that although Viktor has a structure to the lesson, if the students (étudiant(e)s en français) start to converse in French on a different subject he lets the subject run, interjecting and adding to our knowledge, using the internet in conjunction; to help us grow our vocabulaire and our comprehension. Just so unlike the school lessons I used to have!

I also went on a trip this week, with some of the students and a teacher, the lovely Christine, to Honfleur. It’s a beautiful port just thirty five minutes drive from Rouen. I had been there before years ago but going with fellow students and a French Professeur made it all seem slightly less like a tourist town. I’m sure I spotted some fellow Brits so I ducked my head and avoided eye contact and spoke French loudly so they didn’t recognise me as a brit as well. Nothing could be worse!

The weekend for me has been spent exploring a few French villages and enjoying very tasty French food and ‘les vins‘ – in the words of the advertisement – “le pain, du vins et le Boursin” except it was infinitely better local “fromages des pays“. All in all a very happy and satisfactory first week ‘en france‘. I’ll keep you posted next week.

1ST WEEK BACK AT SCHOOL | Student Blog

This week we invite Alan, a mature student from England, to tell us a bit about his first week at French in Normandy as part of a series on our student blog.


I wouldn’t have said I was your archetypal student, but then according to Eleri Maitland the Director and owner of French in Normandy there is no such thing as an archetypal student. I am not surprised to hear her say this, as Eleri is not your archetypal French School Teacher! For a start off, the owner of the best French language school in France is not French! She is very proudly, une Femme Galloise vivant en France. (‘a Welsh woman living in France’ for those uninitiated amongst you. Look at me speaking French already!) Eleri started the school some 25 years ago and with her excellent team have landed the top prizes in their industry. I am lucky enough to be enrolled for 15 hours of French language tuition a week in their cool and slightly chic school in the Sotteville region of Rouen. Home of such notables as Jeanne D ‘Arc and Guillaume Le Conquerant. As an Englishman in Rouen (Is that the name of a Sting track?) I should feel at home, after all we were ruled and spoke Norman French in England for 200 years. Richard the Lionheart (Coeur de Lion, as in the Camembert Cheese brand) was also the Duke of Normandy, and its true I do feel very much at home.

Right from the beginning when I had my assessment test with the friendly Vanessa I was made to feel at home. I was a little nervous I must admit, after all I am a 57-year-old returning to school to study French, the last time I was in a classroom was 42 years ago!

First of all, Vanessa sat me down with a cup of coffee and asked me to tell her a little about myself, in French of course – both the question and my answer! Now here is the thing; the key point; the point of no return, the tingling moment that you have to ‘man-up’ to when you enrol in a French language school in France – you have to get over your nerves, forget about maybe sounding a bit silly and actually talk. Even if you only know the word for Hello (Bonjour) that is enough. You just have to get over that one little hurdle.

Fortunately for me I knew and somehow remembered a few words and promptly murdered the French language with what was probably the worst grammar and worst accent poor Vanessa and the rest of France has had to endure since God was a boy! She was polite, smiles a lot and gently helped me stagger through a few sentences about where I was from, what I did for a living and such like. Then when she could bear the terrible French anymore (not that she gave anything away) I was led to the ‘ Technologie‘ room, that is to say a room full of laptops and screens, where I was asked to answer as best I could about 30 multiple choice French questions. Some of them I couldn’t even say out loud to myself, some I kind of recognised a few words and pretty well all of them I didn’t understand a single word and, so I guessed. Amazingly I scored 42%. I was obviously a language natural, a linguistic god in the making.

Not quite, it turned out after my week end break on the first proper day of school I was in class B1. I think that means Beginner 1. C’est la Vie, what did I expect? Well I did not expect Victor! He is Le Professuer. Now in England Professor conjures up images of a bald bespectacled slightly serious old man in a cap and gown, not some wacky, football loving, video game playing family man with a rather cute line in Gold lame pencil cases. From the off, we were in good hands as he digressed almost immediately from the prescribed curriculum into some hilarious expedition into the habits, loves and life of a fellow student all the way from Sainata in Japan, whose passion in life turned out to be world-wide wrestling, or as the French say La Lutte. The Japanese sounding, part English part French explanation to our puzzled French Professeur had him and us in stitches. I do not remember my French lessons at school being this much fun.

The rest of the morning flew by and at one o’clock Victor called time for lunch, that is one habit the French do extremely well and should never ever be allowed to alter. President Macron do you hear me? The French lunch-break should be sacrosanct in law.

What made this first day so weird was not so much Victor’s très bizarre humour and methods but the fact that by the end of that first morning, somehow, he had achieved the impossible feat of squeezing more knowledge of the French language into my old and small brain that in four years at my old comprehensive school. The fact that not once, in a class room full of international students ranging from ages 18 to 58 did I feel unwelcome, out of place, stupid or embarrassed. It bodes well for the rest of the week. I’ll let you know.

3 reasons why you should do it | My Internship at French in Normandy


“Opportunity never knocks twice”

By Christina Mitzali


One of the greatest experiences of my life has come to an end. Many memories flood my mind while I was packing my stuff to travel back in Greece and so here I am writing this article, even if I don’t usually write, for an experience worth sharing. Once I read on a wall : ”Opportunity never knocks twice”. Well there are many reasons I am glad I didn’t let this opportunity go and to sum up here are the three reasons one shouldn’t loose such opportunity.

The vastness, the beauty of Normandy

Normandy is a very impressive region. In my opinion there is none who wouldn’t feel impressed by its huge green fields, the sea and the history that is written on this land. And of course I have to admit that I never saw so many cows before in my life, well that’s how all this variety of cheese is explained. If you are a cheese lover you should definitely spend some months in Normandy, trust me you won’t regret it! Another thing that you should see at least once in your life is the traditional houses of the region , with their beautiful gardens and their exceptional architecture that makes you feel like you are participating in an ”Astérix et Obélix” movie. You wil find many of this houses in your way to
Etretat, I am sure you wouldn’t miss such an incredible landscape. It has been a while since I visited the ”Falaise d’Etretat” but this image always remains in my mind, proving the majesty of mother nature. But that is not the only proof. There is no doubt that mother nature has been generous to Normandy, that was my thought when I saw Mont Saint-Michel a tidal island included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites, because of its history and its natural beauty combined with the exceptional architecture people created to reach the peak of the beauty of the island. One more thing I wouldn’t forget to include in this section is ”Les plages du débarquement” the beaches of Normandy where the D-Day Landing happened on 6th June 1944. And the best thing is that all these destinations are easy approachable from Rouen! Thank you French in Normandy for your perfect location.

In French in Normandy you feel well

“En Normandie il fait froid mais les gens sont chaleureux” this is what locals say and to sum up it means “a cold region but with warm people” . Well you can’t be sure about this until you meet the people in French in Normandy. Each of them will stay in my heart and I hope while reading this they will know how much I have appreciated their hospitality and their kindness. The things they taught me and the motivation they gave me to discover my strengths and develop my skills. The best thing about the team of French in Normandy is that everyone’s opinion matters, even if you are an intern, an administrative employee,an accountant, a teacher or a manager. Sharing is caring so don’t be afraid to share your ideas with the team! What you will love also there is the intercultural environment. In my case I am glad that i met people from all around the world and together we practiced our French while we were learning for each others culture. Last but not least, French in Normandy is Erasmus+ friendly. I have to admit that making an internship in lovely France with lovely people and having in the same time the help of Erasmus+ is like a dream. This internship will be well recognized in my diploma and will give me a strong advantage in the job market.

Because in France… La vie est belle!

Who hasn’t imagine a to spend a day in the city of lights? Who hasn’t wish to speak the language of love?

Who doesn’t dream to taste the real French cuisine?

These and even more I had the chance to experience during my internship and certainly are some of the best experiences of my life. After these experiences I have no choice but to agree with Audrey Hepburn who supported that Paris is always a good idea. Well the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Avenue des Champs-Élysées are always a good idea. But there are more things to do in Paris. For Disney lovers let’s not forget that the one and only Disneyland in Europe is located in Paris. On the other hand if you are not so interested in Disney but you still love attraction parks you, you shouldn’t skip visiting “Parc Astérix”. This article wouldn’t be complete without festivals. Voilà, France loves festivals and I have to say thank you France for giving me the opportunity to enjoy your festivals. And of course, thank you France for giving to world the French cuisine, however I will not say anything about the cuisine and I will just invite you in France to take a real taste…

Enseigner les langues différemment ?

Cet été, French in Normandy a animé, en partenariat avec l’Université Laval au Québec, la première formation de formateurs en France en Approche Neurolinguistique. 

Cette méthodologie d’enseignement des langues étrangères, basée sur les avancées de ces vingt dernières années en neurosciences cognitives, se fonde sur la distinction des processus qui sont spécifiques à l’acquisition d’habiletés linguistiques, d’une part, et à l’apprentissage des savoirs langagiers, de l’autre.

Le stage certifiant qui vient d’avoir lieu a ainsi livré aux enseignants en formation l’ensemble des connaissances théoriques fondamentales nécessaires à l’expérimentation pratique, au sein de classes réelles, de la série des stratégies constitutives de l’ANL. Par la visée constante du développement del’aisance et de la précision lors de la formation à l’oral, à la lecture et à l’écriture, il s’agit d’optimiser le temps des classes en les inscrivant dans une perspective pédagogique de la littératie qui soit spécifique à l’apprentissage des langues étrangères.

Cette méthodologie, dont les résultats ont été évalués en Amérique du Nord et en Asie, vient de s’adjoindre l’enthousiasme d’enseignants de France, d’Allemagne, d’Italie, de Suisse et du Monténégro ayant suivi la première session de notre stage (écoutez leurs témoignages en ligne). Les prochaines sessions de formation auront lieu du 6 au 10 novembre 2017 à Rouen (France) et du 16 au 20 décembre 2017 à Québec (Canada).

How to choose the best French language school in France

So you’ve decided to study French in France. By now you’ve probably researched the destination, school size, course content and which cultural activities are offered by various French language schools in France. If you’re really serious about your language studies abroad, then considering these 5 factors will really help you to choose the best French language school and ensure you have a valuable study abroad experience.

1. School accreditation

We listed this as first because we believe that your language study abroad experience will highly be determined by the quality of the school you choose to attend and its accreditation. By accreditation, we mean the quality guarantee that covers the teacher’s qualifications, curriculum, the school’s facilities, the school’s business practice & policies and as well as accommodation and other student services. You will find that there are many national and international accreditations and quality assurance schemes in different countries.  Accreditation organizations generally have the same goal – to ensure that their members have high quality standards for their programs and services. That’s why they audit their member schools regularly. For example, French in Normandy is accredited by Qualité FLE, a government recognized certification that is awarded in accordance with a framework based on the following five aspects:

  • Teaching and training courses
  • Teachers
  • Hosting and support
  • Premises, safety and equipment
  • Management

French in Normandy has earned full awards in all 5 categories, making it a highly qualified French language school. The International Association of Language Centres is a global network of accredited independent language schools of which French in Normandy is a longstanding member.

2. Student Reviews

Nowadays you can easily find reviews online for just about anything, from best restaurants to hair salons, hotels and even language schools! There are various websites that provide French language school reviews by former students and French in Normandy is proud to have hundreds of top reviews as well as have been voted Best French Language School in France by our students on the Education Stars website. You can also always check out Facebook reviews for more opinions too!

3. Curriculum and levels of instruction

As you know, some schools teach only from textbooks while others don’t use textbooks at all. Accredited language schools such as French in Normandy have a well-balanced curriculum in line with internationally recognized standards and which covers all aspects of learning a language: listening, speaking, reading, writing, grammar and pronunciation. When choosing a French language school, be sure that you will be tested at the start of your course, throughout your programme and again at the end of your stay so that you can measure your language learning progress from start to finish.

4. Class size

Both the size of the school and class is important, but the size of the class is probably the more important factor when choosing a language school abroad. The most common class size is 15 students but at French in Normandy, the maximum class size is 12, ensuring you have optimal attention and personal instruction from your teacher. The ideal class size is 10 – 12 students, perfect for active participation and comfort, especially if you’re a beginner.

5. Awards

What many people don’t know is that there are numerous industry awards which are given annually to the top schools worldwide in the language learning industry. For example, French in Normandy is the proud 5-time winner of the Star French Language School award, given by Study Travel Magazine and voted by partners and colleagues from around the world. French in Normandy is also the winner of the UED Award in the Best FrenchLanguage School category from UED in Turkey, The Association of International Education Counselors. These awards recognized our accomplishments in French language instruction but also reflect our outstanding relationships with agent partners around the world who are happy to recommend French in Normandy to their clients as the best French language school in France.
