PROGRAMS

Our Language Immersion Programs are:

  • For adults who are passionate about French language and its diverse culture

  • French learning experiences occurring in the “real-life” cultural classroom — in the Eastern Townships of Québec, in Montréal or even in Vermont! Soon in France and in the francophone Caribbean.

  • Through guided situations that encourage interactions with locals, and furthermore build one's confidence in the language (hands-on workshops; one to three-day immersion experiences)

  • A la carte! We tailor our offerings to already-formed groups. If you are a group of friends or colleagues who all have a basic foundation in French and want to take your language a step further together -- we would love to get you there!

PROGRAMS

We invite you to explore our selection of immersion journeys that offer exciting language and culture experiences through unique activities --- all in French and so close to home!
