Intensive French

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Join this intensive language and culture study program and benefit from the exceptional opportunity to study with one of the most renowned language schools in Paris, Institut Catholique. After a placement assessment based on language comprehension, students will attend beginner to advanced lessons by native French-speaking instructors taught entirely in French. Also offered are upper-level courses taught entirely in French on French civilization.

There is plenty of flexible time to explore the city since lessons are held during five mornings and two afternoons each week. Students will go on guided tours of this culture capital to gain a better understanding of the cultural significance of Paris. This program also includes a day trip to provide students with a comprehensive experience of French society. July is an optimal time to visit the city since July 14th is Bastille Day and Champs Elysées is the ending point for the Tour de France around a week later!
