Photo: The entrance to CREIPAC, the institute I attended in Nouméa. 

As said in an earlier post, I went to Nouméa, New Calédonia, last year, to attend a French course at CREIPAC.

CREIPAC is  short for Centre de Recontres et d’Echange Internationaux du Pacifique.

The institute helps students in the region learn French and a bit about New Calédonian and French culture. Students come from Australia, New Zealand and other parts of the Pacific.

CREIPAC is situated in Nouville, to the west of Centre Ville, Nouméa’s central business district. A 15-minute bus ride from Centre Ville should get one there.

The University of New Calédonia is on the opposite side of the road to the institute. CREIPAC has a nice yard which extends out to the waterfront.

In the video, as the camera turns to the left, where the fence/wall is, you can see the buildings in the university at the foot of the hills.  

The clip was taken inside CREIPAC.
