Live and Learn the Language

Spend your mornings in the classroom brushing up on your French language skills and your afternoons in workshops or exploring the beautiful Basques region of the Bas-Saint-Laurent.

Participate in a walking tour of the town and stroll down the main street lined with colourful brick and wooden houses constructed in the style of old Quebec. Learn to orient yourself at the town's main intersection, marked by the post office, the city hall, and the magnificent stone church whose triple spires serve as a landmark for river traffic. Hike through the breathtaking Parc du Bic, take to water by kayak, and go whale watching along the St. Lawrence River.

Spend your evenings absorbing French language and culture through film and music and socializing with fellow students and the community.
