Why Study French On Location?

Imagine enjoying a lunch at a bistro on the Champs-Élysées, taking in French works of art in at the Louvre, or walking the cobblestone markets of the Latin Quarter. There is no place to better improve on French language skills than in the heart of France. The moment students land in Paris, their years of French studies are brought to life as they explore local shops and markets, utilizing their language skills to communicate. Each location in which we reside reveals something new: from the beautiful esplanades and relaxing beaches of Nice, to the picturesque mountains and waterfalls of the Alps, students will come away with vastly improved vocabulary and confidence in French.

Courses Offered

Core French – Grade 11 or 12 (FSF3U or FSF4U)

The Core French program provides students with the opportunity to further develop their skills in oral and written French while immersed in the French language and culture.

Extended French – Grade 11 or 12 (FEF3U or FEF4U)

Students refine their oral and written skills through immersion with peers, teachers and French locals. French newspapers, magazines and art are utilized as research tools for group assignments and the Independent Study Unit.

French Immersion – Grade 11 or 12 (FIF3U or FIF4U)

Students embark on an extensive study of French literature from within the heart of French culture. Refined use of grammar and language conventions in both oral and written French are emphasized through the analysis of novels, plays, poetry, film and nonfiction.
