Live the language and culture of Quebec

Established in 1932, Western University's French Immersion School offers you an experience of a lifetime: a complete immersion environment, so that you not only learn French, but live the language and the culture of Quebec.

In Trois-Pistoles, French is the language of everyday life: on the streets, in shops, restaurants, and homes. The whole town is your campus – a living language laboratory.

We invite participants from all over Canada, the United States, and other parts of the world, to improve their French skills and to learn more about Quebecois culture while achieving a personal or professional goal. 

Registration for the 2023 season is now closed. 
Program details for 2024 will be available in late fall. We hope to see you in Trois-Pistoles next summer!
