Students follow the morning Standard Programme and in the afternoon enjoy two cookery workshops with a professional chef (and can join the regular French course activities offered by the language school). Tasting, producing and learning about French cuisine in a relaxed small group atmosphere is great fun, a super way to absorb more French and the perfect way to practise your French!
In the cookery school, a short walk from the French school in Montpellier, a gourmet chef will supervise the cookery workshop. He will explain in full, the French cookery specific vocabulary, the food and ingredients needed to prepare the recipe and the different cookery utensils used. He also offers his help and shares a few trade tips. This is a great way to practise your French outside the classroom during your French language course experience, in Montpellier.
Of course, the cookery classes are given in the French language which helps students to reinvest the language skills acquired at the French language school, to practice the language and improve it even further through full immersion.
