Grammar will be learned in the morning during private lessons. The main principle of linguistic immersion is to be totally cut off from your native language for a while. This is why this method of language acquisition is very profitable. It is an alternative and unique method that goes beyond the traditional learning framework with courses and lessons. Even if private tuition is part of the immersion homestay programme, learning french is completely « free », in daily contact with your host teacher.
