TEFL TESOL Course France - Plèlauff ( Brittany)
Step back into a fairy tale time as you spend a medieval month on our TEFL International course in Plèlauff, a scenic French village in the center of Brittany (Côtes-d’Armor), is close to the region’s rugged coastlines, steep cliffs and numerous medieval towns. Plèlauff is an ideal place to study. A quiet, charming, peaceful village but central to everything you need. Nearby leisure activities include walking, cycling, quad-biking, fishing, horse-riding and for the romantic -- even international dance classes. Plèlauff is a special place.
Plèlauff is 10 minutes down the road from Rostrenen, a medieval town with a historical 16th century manor used in the Revolution and famous for its market of organic breads, vegetables, cheeses and traditional Breton products. Nearby are excellent creperies and Lake Guerledan – popular for jet and water skiing, sailing and golf or just a winter stroll before stopping in a bar with a roaring fire. The 7th century historical town of Pontivy, well-known for the moated castle of Rohan and the Notre-Dame-de-Joie basilica, is only twenty minutes away.
Bretons are renowned for their friendliness and many speak French as well as Breton (a Celtic-based language similar to Welsh). The province takes on a medieval feeling as many of the people still wear traditional lace head-dresses and the region seeps in supernatural and fairy-tale lore. Said to be the final resting place of Merlin and where King Arthur and Guinevere married, Bretons are famous for their supernatural stories, creatures and magical fountains. Common foods include local cheeses, lobster, crab, scallops, oysters, crepes, and cider-making. And with all this to look forward to, we invite you to sample “Medieval France” with TEFL International in the Breton town of Plèlauff.
