Program Overview

Program Description:
Improve your French during this four-week intensive study in French language June 15--July 13, 2013! This program is for early intermediate--advanced levels, taught at the Université Jean Monnet in Saint-Étienne, France, including coursework and directed cultural activities. Students live with host families, attend classes and participate in excursions in the Rhone-Alpes region. The last two days/nights are spent in Paris.

Students earn five credit hours at Missouri Western State University for the four-week program. Communicative language instruction takes place at the Centre International de Langue et Civilisation (CILEC) at the Université Jean Monnet: 20 hours of class per week. Students develop communication skills and study contemporary French culture. CILEC directs cultural outings and excursions in the Rhône-Alpes region, in Ardèche and in Provence, including museum visits, sporting events, cinema, etc...

Students live in true immersion and make great strides in their French language ability during the four weeks: living and eating with host families, developing communicative strategies in class and then applying their French knowledge in interacting with the "Stéphanois" in town and at home, students will become proud of their ability to speak French with confidence. The final two days in Paris provides the opportunity to visit the "must-see" sites in the City of Lights.
Setting Description:
St. Etienne, in the Rhône-Alpes region in the south of France, is a large city (400,000 in the metropolitan area) with a major research university (Jean Monnet) and a student population of 20,000.
