Q. What’s a typical day like?
Learning French is just a part of the equation. A typical day at a French language school consists of learning French in the morning and afternoons full of culture, with activities and excursions taking place mostly in the French language. The point is to learn French and experience the French culture like a native - not a tourist.
Q. Where would I stay?
You have a choice of accommodations during your study program. You can really experience the culture by staying with a French host family. This is the best option when learning French as you will really experience the way a typical French family goes about their daily life - a real slice of culture! Living with a native French family will add another dimension to learning French, and you will be more exposed to the rhythm and intonation of the French language.
Q. I would feel more comfortable staying in a residence or hotel.
No problem – for more independence, you can simply attend a French language school in the morning and then explore the culture on your own. You can choose to stay in a student residence, apartment, or hotel.
Q. Where can I go to a French language school if I don’t want to go to France?
We offer a French language school program in Canada where you can study French, as well. The program in Canada has courses for students, businessmen, and a terrific teen summer camp. It even has a winter sport program where you can learn French and go skiing!
Q. Is there a difference in the French language spoken in France and Canada?
The French language stays the same, but the culture will be different. The differences are minor and more national – that is the Canadian culture vs. the French culture.
Q. If I wanted to learn the French language in Canada and make it a vacation, what things could I do there?There are many exciting things to do in Canada—from experiencing the unique “underground” culture, to taking advantage of the beautiful outdoors, or from visiting the Canadian wine country to taking excursions to Quebec City, Toronto/Niagara Falls, or Ottowa – just to name a few!
