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.

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.

Explorations in French now has three exciting options for students to choose from:

Option A - Explore Arts and History of Paris

Option B - Explore French Society from Inside: English TA internship in local middle schools

Option C - Explore French Society from Inside: Work as a volunteer with local Non-Governmental Organizaitons (NGOs) and Non-Profit Organizations (NPOs)

Students will be given assignments chosen in accordance with the choosen option and 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 and much more!
