We have always integrated into our workshop the themes used in the advanced teaching of French in high schools throughout America. In our program syllabus this year we have highlighted them for you, so that you can be assured of reaching your goals and broadening your cultural understanding of France (and by extension, that of your students as well).
Our Cultural Immersion Workshopmay earn you 85 Massachusetts professional development hours for your efforts.
To celebrate the diversity and richness of the French language and culture, the 2013 stage intensif will be held in Lille, France for seven days and will continue on to Brussels, Belgium for the final five days. Lodgings in a deluxe hotel right in the center of both cities, within walking distance of restaurants, bookstores, boutiques, and public transportation, facilitate your séjour. We’ll be offering a dégustation de vin in addition to a cooking course, two day trips to the charming towns found near Lille and Brussels, a private visit to the European parliament, dinner with a local family, and opportunities to meet the townspeople in addition to our morning seminars and afternoon excursions.

For the fifteenth consecutive summer, we’re proud to present an excellent class leader to lead our seminars and stimulate your inquiry into intercultural issues, all of which is bound to have an impact on your lesson plans in the fall.
Join us as we embrace this rich and varied region in the north. Vive la francophonie!
