Program Description:

L'ecole de Langue Francaise (ELF) is dedicated to teaching the French language in a fun and engaging way. It is located in Chicoutimi, Quebec, one of the most francophone areas in all of North America, making it a great place to master your French. The surrounding city and the beautiful Lac St.-Jean, foster the perfect environment for French social and cultural involvement. Both beginners and advanced speakers are welcome to this French immersion experience. All courses include exciting activities outside of the classroom, to enhance the cultural understanding and application of the language. Students are challenged to speak French 100 percent of the time in order to increase the speed of adapting to the language.
