Club 50+ course in Rouen
You will take a French course of 15 lessons per week in mixed groups of all ages, according to your level of French. Class sizes are a maximum of 15 students, and you will share these with other adult students of all ages. In addition to the mixed-age French classes, you will take part in an activity programme that is exclusively for and tailored towards 50+ students.
In contrast to other French language schools, our Rouen school considers each lesson as a complete hour of tuition. This means that with 15 lessons per week, you'll receive 3 hours of French instruction per day in mixed-age classes, divided according to your exact level of French. The schedule adheres to the Semi-Intensive programme in Rouen, running from 9:30 to 13:00, with a 30-minute break from 11:00 to 11:30.
The Club 50+ course can be taken for 1 or 2 weeks at a time and has two specific start dates during the year.
Immerse yourself fully in the French language and the French way of life, by staying with a Host Family! Practice your French language skills in a warm and welcoming environment with a friendly local family, carefully selected by our colleagues at the school. You will have single room and a half-board meal plan. You can also choose the Host Family Plus option which includes a private bathroom.
The half-board plan means your host family will provide two meals, breakfast and dinner, during the week. During the weekend you will receive full-board meals, which could be an extra simple packed lunch, depending on your schedule. You will also have clean towels, sheets and bed linen, light laundry on offer and access to a peaceful space with a desk and chair where you can work and study.
