A French Virtual Village Adult Week offers a rigorous language and cultural experience in a real-time interactive group setting. Villagers will go on a hands-on language and cultural journey taking them to increased language proficiency, with a focus on comprehension and production.
Each session meets Monday-Friday with three hours of synchronous (live) instruction in small groups virtually and one hour of asynchronous learning and homework opportunities daily. The face-to-face synchronous time includes 30 minutes of one-on-one instruction. Over the five days, villagers receive a total of 20 hours of instruction. We can offer a certificate of completion that may help with professional CEUs.
