French for food & gastronomy lovers program
Learning another language also means discovering another culture. How better to discover French culture than through its gastronomy, recognized in 2010 by UNESCO as belonging to the world’s intangible cultural heritage.
That’s why we offer a French course devoted to gastronomy that will allow you to progress in French while exploring the culinary richness of our regions and terroirs.
Your morning classes will cover the vocabulary and grammar needed to understand the recipes for French culinary specialties, to talk about ingredients used, tastes and cooking methods but also to exchange in French about your own native gastronomy. At IFO, we enjoy intercultural exchanges!
Wine and French regional products will also provide an opportunity to take a look at the professions of men and women who work with this : farmers, market gardeners, cooks, pastry chefs, restaurant owners . . .
During the afternoon, we are the only French language school in Montpellier who gives you the opportunity to get into the act and practice the art of the pastry chef! You will work with Anaïs, pastry chef and French teacher, in 3 hour sessions dedicated to baking cakes and pastries that you will then be able to sample together. You’ll leave with recipes in hand and the techniques you’ll need to rival the best pastry chef. . .
Nature and well-being program
“Treat your planet well” and “treat yourself well” are important concepts for you? For us too! IFO will allow you to improve your French while enjoying the themes and activities that interest you most.
In your morning French classes, you’ll progress in oral and written skills while working with material addressing themes like the environment, agro-ecology and sports. Debates, discussions and games will help you to feel more at ease as you interact with the French people you’ll meet.
In the afternoon, we offer outdoor sports, walks or wellness activities with our partner WISUD.
