Travelbound can organise a large range of language classes which are tailored to the needs of the students and conducted by fully qualified native French-speaking teachers. Students can study at the Centre de Rencontres at d’Échanges Internationaux du Pacifique (CREIPAC) where lessons are often experienced outside the classroom or instead a homestay to fully immerse themselves in the language and culture of New Caledonia.


There is no better way to learn the language than experiencing the day-to-day language immersion that comes from living with a host family. CREIPAC offers students the exciting opportunity to experience a country’s culture and local customs first-hand in a practical environment designed to provide an authentic language education.
