French Immersion Programme - New Caledonia

Stage de Nouméa is an immersion and study experience in New Caledonia for teachers currently teaching French in New Zealand schools and is funded by Future Learning Solutions - Learning Languages and the French Embassy in New Zealand. 

This programme aims to positively affect the sustainability of implementing the learning languages area of the curriculum for teachers and students.


Whilst experiencing a homestay, teachers' time will be divided between school observations, intercultural inquiry and formal language classes at the University of New Caledonia.

I would absolutely recommend this stage. It opened my eyes to a French speaking culture of which I had no previous knowledge.

I would absolutely recommend Stage de Nouméa to other teachers! It gives a great context to the language you choose, allows for stronger cultural knowledge and it allows you to create new contacts.
