Situated in the beautiful south of France, Aix-en-Provence is one of the most beautiful locations in France. This wonderful city boasts a rich cultural heritage, world-beating cuisine and gorgeous rustic surroundings—which makes it the perfect location for our October 2024 Immersion Special Guest Programme.

The experience allows participants to learn and practise French while enjoying the best that Aix has to offer. Over the course of five days, the programme combines expert-led morning classes with afternoon excursions, including wine tasting, an archaeology tour and walks through the local countryside. As you explore the vibrant markets and quaint cafes of Aix-en-Provence, you'll have the chance to put your new language skills into practice by speaking with locals, fellow learners and, of course, Alexa herself.
