Martinique’s French Language Immersion Tourism

The Martinique Promotion Bureau/CMT USA and the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) will launch a new full-immersion language learning package, offering travelers the opportunity to learn French while experiencing the best of Martinique.

The lessons feature a combination of in-classroom sessions held at the host hotel and guided excursions to cultural and historic points of interest. Slated for March 15-20, the new package (not including airfare) is priced at $899 and includes five nights at the MGallery Bakoua hotel in Trois-Ilets; 12 hours of French conversation classes led by a bilingual instructor/tour guide; five complimentary meals; one full day catamaran excursion; and guided excursions to La Pagerie Museum (birthplace of Empress Joséphine), Fort-de-France, and the Depaz rum distillery. The package rate is based on double occupancy and a minimum of 10 participants.

Director of Americas for the Martinique Promotion Bureau/CMT USA Muriel Wiltord says, “There’s a strong demand for French language immersion classes in sunny destinations like Martinique, especially during the winter months. Much more than a pretty place to learn, Martinique is recognized for its strong cultural assets and rich history. This immersion program unites all of this to create a truly unique educational travel experience.”
