I had a week experiencing Michel’s very patient teaching in Belle Isle in July. He lives in an unspoilt hamlet, where the only noise is that of a tractor or the birds.
Without the distractions of other students it is a perfect setting to live and breathe the language.
Learning French in a classroom with a grammar book is one thing, but as I found can not equip you for the “real world” and everyday situations.
I found my listening skills came ahead in leaps and bounds as one is only hearing French spoken at a normal speed.
The opportunity to meet a couple of Michel’s friends who have superb gardens on the Island was a wonderful experience.
If you have a week to enjoy France and love learning the language this in my opinion is the perfect place to go.
