The schedule of classroom sessions, workshops, organized cultural and sporting activities maximizes the students’ exposure to the French language and culture to ensure an ideal learning experience. You will be charmed by the region's scenery and its most beautiful sunsets. Our program attracts sports enthusiasts as well as budding musicians.

Qualified, experienced and friendly instructors work with students to achieve the proficiency expected at each level, from beginner to advanced.
Our Program offers 8 levels: three beginner, three intermediate and two advanced levels (see course descriptions). Some levels may not be offered due to insufficient number of students. Placement tests are given on the first day of school and you are grouped by level into classes of approximately 20 people.
