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, parents 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 Family Week program welcomes adult participants at the beginner to advanced levels of French proficiency and children aged six to 12, enrolled in French immersion programming.

Parents

Adult participants will be placed in a small class with 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, cultural outings and additional class time.  Evenings are for social and cultural activities.

Children

The younger participants will have the opportunity to improve their French skills during the morning classroom activities and practice these skills through various activities in the afternoon (music, art, sports and games). Some afternoon activities will be organized in partnership with the local day camp, allowing interaction with local children of the same age. In the evening, children can attend the social and cultural activities with their parents, or our specially designed children's programming.

Activities for the whole family

We offer a variety of activities that the whole family will enjoy, including:

  • Whale watching
  • Quebecois dancing
  • Francophone cinema
  • Musical performances

View the preliminary schedules for both the adult programming and children's programming.

Homestay

Families will live with local residents and become part of an extended francophone family. The homestay will allow you and your children to experience Quebecois cuisine while improving your language skills through conversation.
