The Concept

Our intensive language and study tour has been designed for students at intermediate and advanced learning level. Our homestay partners are carefully selected to provide students with a safe and comfortable family environment in convenient locations, and is an ideal opportunity for students to progress their language skills while making new friends.

CREIPAC has long been regarded as the leading language school in Noumea, and has been a longstanding partner of G.E.T for more than 20 years. For those schools who have visited CREIPAC many times, and who may be interested in learning in a more conversational and integrated style, then we have additional language schools which you may consider as alternatives. Information is available upon request. 

Itinerary Day By Day

DAY 1 AUSTRALIA – NOUMÉA

Fly directly from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane to Noumea with Aircalin. For schools outside of these capital cities there are convenient domestic connections from other Australian airports. On arrival at Tontouta Airport you will transfer by coach to your hotel accommodation on the idyllic Anse Vata beachfront.

DAY 2 HOMESTAY (B, D)

After a full buffet breakfast at the hotel, you will transfer by coach to Centre de Rencontres et d’Echanges Internationaux du Pacifique (CREIPAC) for your first 3-hour French lesson. The lessons will be focused on conversational French, and will give you a number of useful phrases and expressions that you can practise during your time in New Caledonia.
Following the lesson, you will be transferred to the hotel. The afternoon is at leisure until 4:30pm, where you will meet your homestay family and be taken to their home for the next 5 nights.
Teachers will be accommodated at Nouvata hotel during this time.

DAYS 3 & 4 HOMESTAY (B, D)

Each morning you will have breakfast with your homestay family and then they will drop you off at CREIPAC for your French lessons. In the afternoon, you will meet with your teachers at the agreed location for your afternoon activities (the G.E.T French Language Worksheets are a great way to fill in the time!). At 4.30pm, your host family will pick you up from the agreed meeting point and you will return to their home for the rest of the evening. You will share dinner with the family and have a chance to practise all of the French that you have been learning in class.

DAY 5 AMÉDÉE LIGHTHOUSE (B, L, D)

After breakfast your host family will drop you at Port Moselle at 8am for a full day excursion to Amédée Lighthouse. You will take the Mary D boat out to the island and have plenty of time to walk around the island, view the coral reef from glass bottom boats, climb the lighthouse and soak up your beautiful surroundings.
This excursion also includes a tropical island buffet lunch and performance on the beachfront, which showcases the best of Melanesian culture and dance.

DAY 6 HOMESTAY (B, L, D)

You will spend the day with your host family and have a unique opportunity to experience what daily life is like for locals in Nouméa. Your host family will provide all meals on this day.

DAY 7 NOUMEA (B, D)

After breakfast your homestay parents will drop you at the language centre for your final language lesson and say their goodbyes. Following your lesson, you will transfer by coach to your hotel accommodation, and then you will have free time to enjoy your final afternoon in Noumea. We highly recommend a trip to Geant supermarket for some lunch and some last minute shopping for friends and family. Dinner this evening.

DAY 8 NOUMÉA – AUSTRALIA

After breakfast this morning it is time to say goodbye to New Caledonia and transfer by coach to Tontouta Airport for your flight home.
