Sabrina Sebban-Janczak is a legendary teacher, recognized as a TOY in Colorado. She teaches the French Language Lab in the Agen Workshop and has been offering an immersion course in Agen for both French teachers and beginners for several years. Last year there were so many students wanting to take her course that she asked Daniel Kline Logsdon-Dubois to teach with her. They had great fun working as a team, so now they are offering a brand-new immersion course during the last week of July and the first week of August 2020.
Who can enrol?
The course is open to all levels. French teachers can improve their proficiency in French, while beginner and intermediate students progress in their acquisition. When Sabrina and Daniel are not team-teaching, Sabrina will work with the advanced students and Daniel will coach the lower levels.
What will we do?
During the mornings of the first week the immersion students will be with Sabrina in the French Language Lab of the Agen Workshop. Those who are not enrolled in the Agen Workshop will go on excursions in the town of Agen during the afternoons. During the mornings of the second week, participants will get Comprehensible Input from Sabrina and Daniel, sometimes in separate groups and sometimes everyone together with the two teachers.
Then during the afternoons of the second week everyone will go on excursions to different sites in the Lot and Garonne, visiting, meeting and conversing with French people who are passionate about their craft, their culture, their homes, their sports. Drivers and vehicles for the excursions are included in the price. Students will have a choice of which excursions they wish to do.
Participants who wish will be hosted by a French family, for a true immersion experience.
Others may choose to stay in an Airnb or at the Stim’otel which offers a special price to Workshop participants.
Meals are not included in the price. Agen has a wide choice of friendly little restaurants at very reasonable prices. We encourage participants to explore them or to organize picnics in the parks.
Dates: Sunday evening, July 26th – through Friday, August 7th.
Saturday, August 1st and Sunday, August 2nd, are free days. Participants are free to explore the area on their own or with their host families.
