Program Overview

Program Description:
To really understand a language you need to know the people, the places, and the culture - there is no better way to do this than to make France your classroom this summer. The moment you land in Paris you will bring your past years of French experience to life; imagine enjoying a lunch at a bistro on the Champs-Élysées, viewing French works of art in the Louvre, or walking the cobblestone markets of the Latin Quartre. Each location in which we reside will reveal something new: from the beautiful esplanades and relaxing beaches of Nice, to the picturesque mountains and waterfalls of the Alps - all the while putting your language skills to the test. By immersing yourself in a classroom that traverses the heart of French culture you will learn much more than just the French language.
