Family Week

French Immersion for Families

Come and study French 'en famille' in the friendly and safe town of Trois-Pistoles.

During this week-long program, adult participants will be grouped with other adult learners at the same level and will learn to speak French more easily and with greater confidence while the children will be immersed in a francophone milieu with planned daily activities and outings. Everyone will benefit from this French immersion adventure.

The program welcomes adult participants at the beginner to advanced levels of French proficiency and children aged six to 13, enrolled in French immersion programming.


Adult participants will be placed in a small class with nine to 10 students who are at the same level.  These classes will focus on language skills and vocabulary building for everyday communication.  Afternoons will feature conversation groups, pronunciation classes and cultural outings.  Evenings are for social and cultural activities.


The younger participants will join in with local children at a summer day camp. Families will live with local residents and become part of an extended francophone family.
