Au nid | In the nest


It's not too late to join us in Akaroa. We have someone who has had to pull out so there is a Seaview Studio going begging at the moment. Jetez un œil. If you're keen to know more, just let us know.

We have had a huge response to our annual Raclette Dinner and it is sold out. It’ll be back on next year, but if you can't wait that long, you might want to register your interest for our upcoming Dégustation de Vin* scheduled for September.

Great news here au nid*. Deborah is back and she’s available for conversation classes and private lessons. In Term 4, Deborah will be taking on a full roster of evening group lessons, but in Term 3 she has a couple of spots available of an evening and would love to see you.

If you’re keen to put your French to the test, register your interest for the DELF in 2018. As you know, since the DELF classes are so small (max. four students) we decide their place on the timetable to suit the participants, autant que possible*. So if you think you may be interested, let us know and we'll start the ball rolling.

Want an introduction to French wines in a fun, relaxed setting? Come and join us as Constant Beguin Billecocq, from Noble Wines joins us to give us an intro into les vins français*. We'll be tasting un vin blanc*, un vin rosé*, un vin rouge* and un champagne, bien sûr*. Places limited, lots of fun to be had.

Don't forget, Speaking Practice starts in just two weeks' time, and it’s not too late to benefit from the ‘Catch the Worm’ Price. Following straight on from Speaking Practice, in the September school holidays, we have two fantastic workshops, En Voyage and Les Petits Mots. En Voyage will have you speaking more like a local and less like a tourist. Les Petits Mots is for any of you who have ever exclaimed ‘It's the little words that get me!”. Limited places.
