    Accelerate your French with four weeks of language immersion in this student-friendly city in southern France. After language classes, dive into French conversations out in community markets, cafes, funky shops, chic boutiques, and the liveliest square in town—Place du Capitole. 

    Also enjoy cultural activities, such as playing traditional music at the Centre Occitan, opportunities to talk with French teens, and visits to significant sites, such as the historic Jacobins monastery, the modern Airbus headquarters, or the Hall of Machines with its mechanical wonders, including a giant dancing spider!

    Living in a local homestay puts you in tune with the customs and rhythms of everyday life, and it grows your language and cultural competence in countless ways. Weekend excursions take you to Carcassonne, a World Heritage site and medieval fortress, and to the Domaine du Thoré, an eco-lodge where you will hike and explore the beautiful French countryside.
