After months of intense work to prepare the 2020 language courses and programs, we will not be able to start our season in April this year. This is of course an exceptional situation.

The measures that have been taken to stop the propagation of the COVID-19 pandemic oblige us to suspend for the moment all activities and CREA-Langues courses at the Monastère.

We wish very strongly that all activities can start again as soon as possible, hopingly on the 18th of May. We will keep you informed.

You can currently inscribe for all courses between the 18th of May and the 9th of October. For any questions, you can contact Joan.

Take care of yourself, your beloved ones and the people around you.

We hope to find soon a path through this current situation.

With warm regards,

Annemarie Desmet
In the name of teams of CREA-Langues and le Monastère.
