My Experience Learning French at Ecole des Trois Ponts (France)

Ecole des Trois Ponts France

I wanted to share my posts from a previous blog I had in 2011. I attended the Language and Cooking School in France, Ecole des Trois Ponts in Riorges, France. It is located near Roanne which is west of Lyon. I took language classes in the morning and cooking classes in the afternoon (after doing some homework). Everything—all meals, classes, cooking and interactions—-were done in French. It was one of the best experiences learning French. I’ve ever had and feel it is also one of the best ways to improve one’s French.  My visit in 2011 was actually my second time. I had attended 6 months previously; however, I only did language classes.

What Each Day Was Like: Language Lessons and Cooking

The following are links to the posts explaining what I did each day. There is a balance of language class information and cooking class information. Hopefully if you are considering doing French immersion in France, you’ll see what it is like. Yes, it can be intense; however, it is fun and in the end you DO improve!

In a future post I will share my other experiences learning French in France.
