Program Overview

One of our most cherished missions is to help our students immerse
themselves fully during their stay in Paris. French is our preferred language of
communication in everyday life with our students.
The program holds several orientation meetings about practical questions on Parisian life such as getting around, meeting people, staying safe etc...

All students will be enrolled for 9 hours of French language study at Cours de Civilisation Francaise de la Sorbonne. In addition, the the quality of your immersion and your linguistic progress will be monitored and assessed during individual interviews held every two weeks as a part of the "Explorations in French" course.

During these interviews with the responsible pédagogique of the program, you will be
given assignments chosen in accordance with your personal goals and interests.
Such assignments may include visits to current art exhibitions, conduction
of surveys in Parisian neighborhoods, participation in cooking classes, artistic
workshops conversational exchanges with locals, volunteer opportunities in local
organizations and much more!
Below is a short list of the most popular institutions frequented by our students:
