A Memorable Immersion in Alsace with Thomas

My immersion homestay with Thomas was nothing short of spectacular. From the onset, Thomas was extremely communicative and made sure I was well-prepared and comfortable for the journey ahead. He was extremely flexible and gracious when there was a last minute change to my arrival time and destination.

The apartment is top-notch! It’s well-equipped, perfectly located to explore by bike or on foot, and just a short walk from Thomas’ own home. Every corner of this region exudes beauty, and with each excursion, I was constantly in awe of the sights.

What made this experience truly special was not just the scenery or the delectable local cuisine, but the enriching lessons and conversations I shared with Thomas. His approach was highly personalized, making the learning experience feel tailored just for me. I especially appreciated the challenge of applying newly learned vocabulary and verb tenses in my daily journals which were written, of course, en francais and reviewed/corrected with Thomas during our lesson the next morning.

But it wasn’t just Thomas who made my stay memorable. His family and friends, whom I had the pleasure to meet, were all genuinely warm and welcoming, adding another layer to my enriching experience in Meyenheim.

In summary, my time with Thomas was a combination of immersive learning, awe-inspiring views, delicious food, and genuine connections. Thomas is not just a fantastic instructor but also a wonderful host. If you’re considering a French immersion experience, I can’t recommend Thomas enough. It’s an experience I will cherish forever, and I’m sure you would too!
