Martinique Offers Full-Immersion Language Learning Package

The Martinique Promotion Bureau/CMT USA has teamed with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) to launch a new full-immersion language learning package, offering travelers the opportunity to learn French while experiencing the best of Martinique.
"There's a strong demand for French language immersion classes in sunny destinations like Martinique, especially during the winter months," said Muriel Wiltord, director, Americas for the Martinique Promotion Bureau/CMT USA. "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."

Slated for March 15-20, the new package is priced at just $899 and includes the following:

• 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
• Full day catamaran excursion
• Guided excursions to La Pagerie Museum (birthplace of Empress Joséphine), Fort-de- France, and the Depaz rhum distillery

The $899 package rate is per-person based on double occupancy and a minimum of 10 participants. Airfare and some meals are not included. The lesson plan features a mix of in-classroom sessions held at the host hotel, the MGallery Bakoua, and guided excursions to cultural and historic points of interest throughout the island. Excursions are planned in line with each day's classroom session, reinforcing lectures by showcasing the best of Martinique's museums, rhum distilleries, sailing and beaches.

Bookings for the new language immersion package in Martinique must be made by February 25.
