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.
