Learn French while enjoying the attractions of Guadeloupe

If you are looking for a place where you can learn French and have a fun-filled vacation, you must head to the Guadeloupe, a French overseas department since 1946.

Located in the Lesser Antilles, Guadeloupe is composed of two islands, the Basse Terre and Grande Terre, separated only by a narrow salt river. The islands is home to about 500,000 inhabitants, covers a total land area of 629 square miles, and blessed with a tropical climate.  Guadeloupe was discovered by Christopher Columbus who named the islands Santa María de Guadalupe de Extremadura. The island was colonized by the British, Spanish, Swedes, and French. Sweden relinquished the island to France in the Treaty of Paris of 1814, and in 1946, Guadeloupe became an overseas department of France. Its rich Franco-Caribbean culture is evidenced by its friendly locals, passion for cooking, and a laid back atmosphere. Being a French department, Guadeloupe is where you can learn French while exploring the numerous attractions of the islands.  Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport is your gateway to the islands. It is located on the west side of the island of Grande-Terre and is served by a number of Caribbean and international carriers.
