LIVE THE REAL FRENCH EXPERIENCE…
Our « French Culture and Language Immersion Programme » affords you the opportunity to experience a fabulous combination of personal development, language acquisition, cultural appreciation and networking opportunities – not forgetting gastronomic excellence: this is France after all!
This exclusive experience is such a reliable platform for success, it’s become an important date in our annual events calendar.
“Studies show that, while there are many effective methods of language acquisition only immersion training leads to full native-like brain processing of linguistic elements like grammar.
This limited-availability immersion programme, organised by a coach originally from the area, is suitable for any level of language proficiency. Benefit from a once-in-a-lifetime tourist experience while making huge strides in your French.”
Nathalie Danon, Academy Director

We’ve been running residential programmes for both children and adults for 8 years now, and we know that an important part of their success it to keep them exclusive. For this reason, this year we are only inviting 16 participants on our bespoke Auvergne immersion programme.
Scheduled for April 2023 and avoiding school holidays in both the UK and France, places are limited, so talk to an advisor now to make sure you’re on the list!
“I’ve just been on an excellent VICI Immersion Week in France and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The programme was skillfully constructed to be fun as well as instructive. It’s often a struggle learning a second language as an adult but this week was a big leap forward for me.
I’d strongly recommend it.”
“My French is in the elementary stages and my determination to improve prompted my decision to join the Vici Academy French Immersion Trip. The course was outstandingly organised.
The trip was action packed with local attractions, gastronomic experiences and, importantly, French learning. This all constituted to a total immersion course of the highest standard. I have returned, after the week, feeling exceptionally lucky to have taken part.
Thank you, VICI Academy.”
“It was an excellent trip! The dedication, enthusiasm and planning of the team made it a totally unique learning experience… By the last day, I felt almost like a local, chatting to the shopkeeper, rather than just pointing and muttering “deux baguettes et cinq croissants, s.v.p.” as I would have done before the trip.
I would definitely recommend this immersion programme to others, it was totally what I had hoped for and it more than met my expectations.
Well done VICI.”
