City and Country Program

We hope to offer the City and Country Program in 2022 and will provide more details soon. If you would like to be notified when registration opens for this program, please email us at Thank you for your interest!

There's no better way to learn French and experience true Quebecois culture than by fully immersing yourself in the language and lifestyle.

The French immersion School in Trois-Pistoles has partnered with the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM) to offer a unique immersion experience. The City and Country program allows you to experience the language and culture of the city of Montreal and the friendly charm of the small town of Trois-Pistoles.

During this 13-week program, you will have the opportunity to attend French classes, communication workshops and cultural activities in order to improve your knowledge of the French language and Quebecois culture.  In Trois-Pistoles, you will also have the chance to integrate into the community through volunteer projects.  All elements of the program reinforce one another and maximize opportunities for you to speak French and to enrich your cultural experience.
