Outings and activities with ALFMED
Learn French and discover the French culture – those are the main objectives of ALFMED!
That’s why ALFMED offers visits and cultural activities in addition to the language courses. These visits are organised by ALFMED itself or directly by the local tourist information.
ALFMED also proposes the participation in annual events in Perpignan and its surroundings to the students:
The students can visit the international festival of photojournalism “VISA POUR L’IMAGE” in September. They can make a guided visit with a professional of photojournalist. There are different topics and locations, the students can visit the festival during the courses with a member of the ALFMED team or by themselves in their free time.
The welcoming day at the “Palais des Rois de Majorque” is organised by the Conseil Général of the Pyrénées Orientales and its target is to welcome the new arrivals on the Catalan ground and to present to them the different institutions, which could be helpful for the integration in Perpignan’s social life.
The “Fête des Vendanges” (vintage celebration) in Banyuls usually takes place during the second weekend in October. The small village Banyuls celebrates the vintage, which happened during the summer. It’s a tradition of ALFMED to take the students there on the Sunday of this long weekend, to have a picnic and a big wine tasting.
All these excursions are organised within a pedagogic and cultural scope and in complementary to the French courses.
That’s why the ALFMED team ensures a complete immersion into the French language and the culture.
