Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 11th February, for our new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams as we visit Arcachon, the beautiful Francophone region based on the Languedoc region of France, which has recently come close to closure, despite offering great activities and developing a brilliant immersive language learning programme.
We explore some of the beauties of the region with Claire Pascale, the owner of Arcachon and with Cybère Placebo, who has been working on developing language courses, as well as Karelia Kondor, a teacher of French in the UK, who has used the region of Arcachon in her teaching.
We’ll be exploring the region, discussing the plans to use it as an immersive language resource, and also experiencing some of the activities it offers, from wine tasting, to a hot air balloon trip, to harvesting (and enjoying!) fresh oysters.
And we’ll be looking at the problems owners face in sustaining such a region.
It makes for a fascinating show – so do come and join us at 2pm.
