Our French school in Montpellier has a formula that combines the Standard French language course for adults with cooking classes headed by a starred Chef. Learn French in Montpellier with this nice way of combining work with pleasure, because during this residential French course, you are given the chance to learn all the subtleties of the French language while getting to cook and make the most of advice from a reputed and starred Chef. You will learn during your French language stay in France all the secrets of how to prepare a French meal successfully!
The standard French course for adults is a French Immersion course for learning general French by acquiring the 4 skills for speaking, writing, listening and reading as according the recommendations from the CEFRL (Common European Framework of reference for languages). The main idea of this French Immersion Program is to practice grammar, tenses, enrich your range of vocabulary and train yourself to recognise French sounds. This is without forgetting initiation to French culture in everything that it represents.
The Standard French language course is combined with cooking classes during which you can discover French gastronomy and its particularities by way of trying out different recipes (dishes and desserts) in small groups. You will of course get the chance to taste your cooking at the end of the class together with the starred chef and with some nice glasses of local wines. This tasting is included in the price of the French Standard Course plus cooking course price.
In the cooking school, located just next to our French school in Montpellier, Armand Layachi, a reputed starred Chef and rewarded by many guides, will supervise the cooking lesson. He will explain all the French vocabulary that is specific to cooking, such as food and ingredients needed to prepare the recipe or even the different cooking utensils used. He also offers his help and gives you tips. This is a great way to study French outside classroom during your French language immersion stay in Montpellier.
Of course, cooking classes are given in French language which helps students to reinvest the language skills acquired at our French language school to practice the language and improve it even further in full immersion.
*In high season the timetable can change
This formula combining French classes in Montpellier with cooking courses is open to all learners from beginners (A1) to advanced learners C2) who wish to discover or improve their knowledge of general French (grammar, vocabulary, culture) and practise the French language whilst also getting to know the universe of French gastronomy by cooking with a reputed Chef.
You will be given a list of specific vocabulary for cooking at the beginning of the cooking course to make sure that students of all levels will be able to follow the class. Moreover, the cooking class is very “sensory” – because cooking is not just about tasting but also touching, looking at the food and smelling it – even students with a very little French language skills can enjoy this class because it is not only an immersion program for language learning but also gastronomy; this will be a delight for your taste buds!
Study French in France with this formula is a very wise decision because you will be able to combine work, relaxation, discovery whilst also practicing the language in a very fun way and without even realising you are in the process of learning. French language immersion encourages this. It is a good compromise between more structured Standard French classes and cooking classes which are even more relaxed and friendly.
