French immersion and the town of Trois-Pistoles are made for each other. At the French Immersion School, we emphasize an integrated approach to learning. All elements of the program - the courses, the workshops, the homestay and the social and cultural activities - reinforce one another and maximize opportunities for you to hear and speak French and to enrich your cultural experience.

We offer different lengths of credit programming:

  • Five week credit program (full-year credit), including the Explore bursary program
  • Three week credit program (half-year credit)
  • Two week program (half-year credit) for French as a second language teachers

We also offer non-credit programming for those who prefer not to earn a university credit:

  • One week or two week intensive program for adults (18+)
  • One week for families with children in French Immersion (ages 6 to 12)

We also offer optional non-credit prepatarory courses for participants with a beginner to intermediate knowledge of French who are enrolled in the Five Week or Three Week Credit Program, the Explore Program, or the Adult and Family French Immersion Programs.

Western's 100% francophone environment at one of the most renowned French immersion schools in Canada, is a great way to learn a new language or upgrade and enhance existing language skills.
