What are Depaysio experiences?
Led by native-level speakers, our experiences are interactive immersion sessions offered online. The goal is to allow you to practice a foreign language in a fun way while learning something new.
How are Depaysio experiences different from typical language lessons?
Depaysio experiences are designed to be complementary to more traditional language learning approaches, allowing you to put the skills you’ve learned in class to use in a real-world context. Instead of focusing on teaching you grammar or vocabulary, our experiences teach you new creative skills while immersing you in a foreign language.
Who are your experience leaders?
All of our online experiences are led by native-level speakers, either experienced language teachers looking to share their hobbies and passions or subject-area experts who are able to adapt their content to an audience of language learners.
How do Depaysio experiences work?
To participate in one of our experiences, simply click the "join the session" button on the experience description page. Once you've booked your session, you'll receive email instructions on how to access the Zoom session. After the experience, you'll receive a downloadable toolkit with additional pedagogical resources.
What language level do I need to participate?
Our experiences are designed for beginner to advanced level language learners and the target level is indicated in the description of each experience. If you’re not sure of your level, feel free to contact us.
What if I don't understand?
Taking into account that language learners often have trouble understanding native speakers, we have adapted our experiences so that they are accessible to a non-native speaking audience. Experience leaders are happy to clarify as needed, so don't be afraid to ask!
What's the difference between a language discovery and a language immersion experience?
Designed for language learners of all levels and particularly adapted to beginners, these experiences focus on cultural immersion. They are mostly in English, but also include relevant vocabulary and expressions in the target language.
These experiences provide a complete immersion in the target language. Led by a native-level speaking subject experts, they are ideal for intermediate to advanced level language learners.
