FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Depaysio experiences?

Led by native-level speakers, our experiences are small-group creative workshops and interactive tours 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.

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. You will also receive a recording of your experience so that you can review any points that were unclear.

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.
