I had strongly considerered going to Paris for a week in Sept to learn French (I'm at intermediate sort of level). Now I'm having doubts and don't know if it would be worth my time or money, as the costs are all adding up.

Has anyone been on language holidays before? Are they worth the money?

Any other suggestions as to what I could do instead?

I've been on holidays to practise my French before - it's well worth it.

I seriously do recommend that you go on a holiday to practise. Don't be scared - the first times that you have to say things to the native speakers, you might get a bit apprehensive, but you'll enjoy it so much you won't want to go home.

They are definitely worth the money - people go on holidays to countries where the language spoken they do not speak, but you'll have the same experiences but with the added extra of being able to get by properly =]

When I was in the lower sixth and studying A-level French I spent two weeks on an intensive French language course in Nice. It was excellent and I would recommend it - the social side of the course was good too and I ended up having much greater confidence in conversation as well as a wider vocab.

Sounds like a good plan!

I'm going to my uncle's in France next week for a week; hopefully I won't just spent it sunbathing and fishing - hopefully I'll get out there and blow the cobwebs away before my French degree starts in Oct, haha!!
