Our school in Le Gosier
Our school Guadeloupe is located in Le Gosier, a small town of just 30,000 inhabitants, on the South coast of the island. Le Gosier is famous for its beautiful beaches, busy marina and for being home to the largest aquarium in the Caribbean!
Our school is situated on the beachfront and has stunning sea views. All 5 classrooms are well equipped with TV, video and audio facilities. There is also Internet access for students.
Courses in Le Gosier
Students at our school in Le Gosier can learn French on an Intensive French language course (20 lessons/week), or else on a Super Intensive French language course (30 lessons/week). These courses are ideal for anyone wishing to improve their general French language skills in groups of like-minded students of a similar ability.
You can also enrol on a Business French Course of 30 lessons/week if you would like to use French in a business context. Perhaps you use French in your job to speak to overseas clients, or perhaps you are applying for a role in a French-speaking company and need advice about the interview process. Whatever the case, this is the perfect course for you!
Alternatively, you can take a course of private lessons for a more personalised learning experience, or even combine your group course with individual tuition on an Intensive + Private Lessons course.
All the group French lessons at our school in Guadeloupe have a maximum of just 10 students per class, providing lots of personal attention to each and every student. Please note: If there are just 1 or 2 students (at the same level) on the Intensive French programme you will receive a lower amount of 10 lessons/week instead of 20. Intensive classes with 3 or 4 students will receive 15 lessons each week.

Student reviews & feedback
Lovely experience, beautiful setting, Thank you!
The school in Guadeloupe is great - the staff is very friendly and helpful, and know how to make it fun!
Fantastic home stay in a beautiful old house with a pretty garden, friendly cats and a dog, and warm and welcoming hosts that were happy to continue helping me practice and learn French in the evenings!
My instructor Sandra was wonderful! Really excellent. I learned a lot of French. My experience was great!!
I wish I knew to bring a few folders to accommodate all the papers, etc we would get every day! I also loved the fact we got homework, and the super-intensive personal course was designed to fit my needs exactly. well done!
I stayed at the Adolphe, and couldn't be happier. the adolphe family were available to us if we needed anything, and bent over backwards to invite us to activities, the beach, etc. they sure didn't have to do that, so that was beyond nice! they are next to the nicest hotel in town, the auberge to vielle tour, and we were able to use the hotel's beach with our own key! sweet! it was a ten-minute walk from the adolphe to st louis catholic church, and then another five minute walk to class. Perfect!
I greatly enjoyed the course and the teacher had good skills. I also felt that having a small group helped me to learn and practice more. I am glad that I attended this school. I wish that I could have stayed longer.
I learned a lot in the 2 weeks, I had Marie as a teacher for B1 and she was an excellent teacher. I loved my host family and would love to come back to the same place next year!
Great experience I would definitely consider going back! Lots of opportunity to brush up on grammar with lots of interactive elements and conversation time even without the additional conversation classes. Always good to have local hosts and the family was a seasoned host family and very welcoming and supportive. All ages and nationalities welcome.
The course I attended was really well organized. High competence of the professor, who took care of each students necessity for further explanations concerning all aspects of the language (grammar, pronunciation, etc). In only two weeks I could notice a great improvement of my skill. My accommodation has been great. the house was nice, comfortable and big but the most important was the family. They really help every student to improve the Language. The house is plenty of books, which are at the students disposal to learn all about the history, culture, geography of Guadeloupe.
