Bienvenue à Moorea !

The majority of your immersion trip will be spent on Moorea. It is the sister island of Tahiti, located 30min away by boat from Papeete. It's a lush volcanic island, surrounded by a lagoon, ideal for hiking and water sports.


The program is a 12-day all-inclusive package: accommodation, meals, French classes, daily activities, transportation on Moorea and Tahiti. The package does not include flights or travel insurance.

Dates

Sunday 27 October - Thursday 7 November (Brisbane time).
Please note that the time zone in French Polynesia is GMT-10. The local dates of the trip are Saturday 26 November - Wednesday 6 November.

French lessons

During the trip, you will complete an 18-hour French course (3 hours of French lessons per day, Monday to Friday). Classes are taught in a casual environment, through interactive techniques (conversation, games, music), incorporating elements of the local culture.

Class groups are determined according to the participants' levels, from beginners to advanced. French is spoken at all times (exceptions are made for beginners when needed, and when activities require further explanations e.g. safety rules).

Teachers are experienced and certified in FLE (Français Langue Etrangère / French as a Foreign Language). You will also be accompanied on the trip by a qualified teacher from Alliance Francaise.


Cultural and outdoor activities

Throughout your stay, you will be immersed in Polynesian culture, with various workshops including Polynesian dance, music, arts, crafts and cooking sessions. 

Island exploration activities are on offer every day after your lessons, including beach days, snorkelling, local markets, accessible hikes on lush valleys, museum visits, lagoon tours and more!



Food

All meals are included in the package. The cuisine is made with local, fresh, and organic products. Includes meals at the accommodation as well as picnics, food trucks and restaurant visits (one restaurant is located on an islet!).

During the stay, you will also participate in a themed local evening (with dance and music, and a buffet featuring specialty discoveries) and meals prepared with all participants.


 

Accommodation at Fare Om on Moorea

"Fare Om is more than an accommodation place on Moorea island, it's an easy-going community where hosts and guests share moments together."

8 nights of the trip will be spent at Fare Om on Moorea, located between the two bays of Cook and Opunohu. Fare Om is a family guesthouse which can accommodate up to 25 people. Individual, double and shared (4-bed rooms) are available (details and prices below). All rooms are equipped with mosquito nets and fans.






Accommodation on Tahiti

For the first night, and final two nights of your stay, you will be staying on Tahiti at Hotel Sarah Nui or Papeete Hime Lodge (depending on the accommodation option chosen below). Conveniently located near the ferry port, both are ideal locations from which to explore Papeete and to easily transfer by boat to Moorea.

Optional additional activities à la carte

During your stay there is a free afternoon on the Thursday, as well as a free day on the second Sunday.
During free time, you have the option to choose from a range of recreational and relaxation activities, which are offered to the program participants at a discounted rate. These include scuba diving, rope courses, canoeing, cycling, surf lessons, massages and more.
