French Summer Program

Program Content – schedule

Program Content 1

French classes

The participants attend 3,5 hours of French class each morning from Monday to Friday. Our team of teachers use a dynamic approach and put a special emphasis on spoken communication. They also help students get used to using the language with stimulating activities, games, field trips, and efficient exercises.

There are 7 levels of proficiency: from total beginners (no French) to very advanced divided into more than 20 groups! The student’s level is determined by an online placement test which is validated with an oral test on the first day.

Program Content 2


Throughout the program, students enjoy a wide variety of activities in French: games,  dances, outings in the surroundings of Quebec City, talent shows, movies and much more! Over 25 monitors lead these activities with energy and concern for the students.


The students will participate in three workshops in French every week, in the afternoon. The workshops give them the opportunity to practise French in a different context and to develop new skills.

The workshops offered vary from Quebec’s society, music and cinema to sports, art, cooking and more! Students indicate their preference upon registration.

*NEW optional activities in the Québec region will be offered in 2018! the 2018 official calendar will be soon published.

Free time

Students enjoy some free time after class when there are no mandatory activities. During these periods, they can participate in the daily optional activities offered by the monitors, take some time off to relax, shop in the mall which is 5 minutes away from the campus or explore the beautiful city with friends! Though, they must be in groups of 4 to leave the campus and they have to be back before curfew (11pm from Sunday to Thursday and midnight on Friday and Saturday).
