Hi Saramd,

there is a place located in Northern India, among the forested hills above the town of McLeod Ganj - the seat in exile of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama where you can learn abt Buddhism, but don't know abt french....check the website mention below.

But, before anything else though I am unaware of what the rules are wrt Iranians, are you sure you will be able to get a Visa valid for 6 months.

It's all Greek to me, but Benglish will do

For learning French, check with the Alliance Franšaise.

Why come to India to learn French and English?

Outside of Pondicherry, I doubt that there are many speakers of French as a first language, although, as per Theyyamdancer's suggestion, of course there are institutions that teach it.

It is easy to find English speakers, especially in the cities. I know people whose English is (as far as I can tell) correct, better than mine (English-born monoglot), but the English of newspapers and the street is very far from it. Mind you, that's true of England too

Agree with Nick about French in a non-French speaking environment. The larger cities have the excellent facility described by They... My better half did such a course albeit with no obvious results. France has about the same population as Maharashtra so why not learn Marathi?

Hill stations are often not quiet but frantic holiday destinations. The advantages of the weather vary with the seasons & one's luck. There is one that has an advantage of Tibetan settlement. My mind freezes over just now. McLeod Ganj. Its said to be even worse of a hippie hangout than when I was there (so described in a recent thread)..

Dear Edwardseco, you mean Mcleod Ganj is not good and calm place by your own experience?

Where is your 6 months stay. A location nearby should be easier.
Bike rides - Kashmir to Leh and Sikkim, Jungle safaris - Corbett,Chikhaldara, Kanha and Gorumara. Traveled through MP, Himachal, J&K, Maharashtra, W.Bengal, Sikkim, Uttarakhand, Goa, Karnataka, AP . . . Yet feel so New to traveling in India.

Try the nunneries at Karsha and Zangla Gompas in the Zanskar Valley. They accept interns free of cost. I have visited them last year and the environment is excellent.

The only problem is that they are cut off from the rest of the world between November and July each year.
