French immersion programmes

You can choose a French immersion programme in either cosmopolitan Paris or the sunny French Riviera. Paris offers you famous delights such as art, architecture, fashion, food, and the unparalleled style of Parisians. Outside your French immersion school, you’ll naturally improve as you experience life along the Seine, the glory of the Arc de Triomphe, and the masterpieces in the Louvre. While chatting in cafes and bistros, you’ll enjoy the work of street artists, musicians, and mimes. Accommodations during your French immersion programme will have you feeling at home, with a local family in a homestay, or in student residence near your classes.

Life on the Cote d'Azur

You can also choose to make the Riviera your home base for your French immersion programme. The weather is comfortable year-round and with lovely coastlines, you'll want to spend lots of time outdoors. Morning classes at our French immersion school focus on communication skills to build your confidence while speaking the language. You’ll have constant opportunities for conversation with fellow students over a cafe au lait, while browsing world-famous boutiques, enjoying the perfect weather at the beach, or trying out the energetic nightlife. Your French immersion programme includes accommodations too—either a homestay with a local family, or a student residence near our French immersion school.
