Courses during a study abroad program

Small groups
The schools that we choose for our language immersion programs usually give their lessons in small groups, from four to ten students per class. It is also often possible to take private lessons if you wish to.

Lessons usually take place in the mornings while afternoons and week-ends are left free for activities, sightseeing, studying or just taking a break.

Accent on speech
Courses are interactive. The student is persistently incited to come out of his shell and to communicate vocally, to overcome his fear of speaking. While in a language immersion, even if we give great importance to grammar, the emphasis is put on speech.

Ranking
The ranking of the students is determined by an evaluation test that you will have to take on the first day of class. Your results will tell the school what level of teaching you require. According to the school you are visiting, up to nine levels are possible in order to form more balanced groups.

In order to have the most accurate starting dates for the courses, it could be preferable however that you could locate your fluency in the desired language within these three levels of proficiency: beginner, intermediate or advanced.

Accreditations
Our schools give out courses accreditation certificates.

University credits
If you are looking for university credits, it is preferable to speak to your registrar in order to know all the exact requirements of your university.

Universities entry exams
