Hello dear reader,
I am Irish and have been living in France for 30 years. I graduated in communication in Dublin in 1990 and then took several foreign language teaching exams to obtain the TOEIC certification from ETS for my university students. I also train teachers at our training center. It has been open since 2011 and welcomes 50 to 70 students each year. We prioritize a friendly and interactive environment and focus on the individual progress of each student.
Regarding the stay, you will share your accommodation with your friend. It is located a 1-minute walk from the training center and a 15-minute walk from the city center. Aix les Bains is known for its well-being, mountains, cross-country skiing, and its natural coastal area, Lake Bourget. It is a region that offers numerous activities for nature lovers.
We will conduct a level test before your arrival via Zoom/Microsoft Teams or by phone. This initial exchange is to understand your expectations and assess your oral comprehension. Please allocate 30 minutes of your time for this test.
You must arrive at the center either by walking 10 minutes from Aix les Bains train station or by using your own means of transportation.
The price includes accommodation + 1 meal + 2 hours of individual lessons with a teacher + correction work. Additional individual lessons are available upon request. The minimum duration is 5 days. All our teachers are 100% English-speaking and qualified. We can assist our clients in the CPF process if needed.
In a typical day:
9AM-11AM: Individual lessons in the morning with your partner.
11AM-12PM: Personal work.
1PM-2PM: Meal (in English).
Free afternoon: 3 group lessons of 1.5 hours each week, based on your level and scheduled in advance according to the placement test.
Arrival: Monday morning at 8AM / Departure: Friday afternoon unless you book additional accommodation for one/two extra nights (see paid options).
We will be waiting for you every morning at 8:30AM at the center, where we will start your day in a friendly manner over a cup of coffee and a croissant... Every morning, you will attend a 2-hour individual lesson with a certified teacher, who will cater to your specific needs. The programs are prepared in advance. At noon, an escort will take you to have your meal in English, allowing you to continue practicing the language in an informal setting.
If you would like to explore Aix-Les-Bains or have more individual English lessons, we offer either lessons with a teacher or activities with an instructor:
• 2-hour walking tour of the city with an English-speaking guide.
• Boat tour with Aix les Bains company.
• Sports activities with TAKAMAKA upon request (climbing, cycling, canoeing, hiking, paragliding, circuit racing).
You can also take the initiative to enjoy the national hot springs or take part in guided tours offered by the tourist office. Depending on the season, you can either go skiing or go to the beach.
