New Caledonia

New Caledonia
9 days

New Caledonia makes for the perfect base for students to immerse themselves in the French language. With swaying palms, turquoise seas, a rich cultural heritage, and French-inspired restaurants and boutiques, New Caledonia and its capital of Noumea are like a miniature Paris in the heart of the Pacific Ocean. Students will get the opportunity to enjoy daily language lessons, gaining confidence and fluency as they embark on excursions to Amadee Island, the Tjibaou Cultural Centre and a visit to a local tribe. French influences are infused into the trip, whether it’s learning to cook French pastries or enjoying French cuisine in a traditional bistro. At the end of this experience students will leave with a newfound confidence in the French language, as well as deep understanding both of Pacific and French cultures.
