The customized French program is for you if you are a business person, civil servant, politician, diplomat, retired person or simply someone who is curious and wishes to learn or perfect your French.
This program gives participants the opportunity to have 5 hours of individual training per day provided by an experienced teacher. Primarily focused on oral communication, training can include aspects of written French as needed.
In addition, your professional field and level of knowledge in French will be used to adapt class content and training to best meet your expectations.
The program is available from August to December and from January to April. Each application is evaluated according to the dates selected by the student and the availability of a professor and host family.
