Vivre une immersion en anglais au coeur de la France
L'avis des "counselors"

Little Big Land has allowed me to develop my skills as counselor and working as a group whilst being in contact with very motivated children...valuable learning experience for both staff and children.

I thought both Le Chambon and Marmoutier were beautiful locations. It was nice in Le Chambon to have the woods to hike in and to take the train to St. Agreve.

Thèbe is an amazing site in the middle of the mountains that is great for hiking and outside activities!!

Kickball, treasure hunt, cluedo, chocolate game and of course parties worked well!

We could clearly see that the English level of most kids had improved. This was a very rewarding feeling.

I think the kids had a great experience as well and went home happy, which is what is important.

I liked how diverse the staff was in terms of country of origin.
LBL is also recruting staff for one-week classe d'immersion programs for school groups in May and June.
