Students who attend this CIEE Global Navigator program will accelerate their French with four weeks of language immersion in the bustling, beautiful, and student-friendly city of Toulouse in southern France. Their skills will skyrocket as they put them to daily use in and around the Pink City.
Eat exquisite pastries, window shop on streets lined with funky or chic boutiques, explore museums, and take it all in.
After morning language classes, you’ll spend an hour per day practicing your skills out in the community – speaking and reading French in markets, cafes, and parks. Later in the afternoon, enjoy group gatherings with your CIEE peers and French host siblings and guided excursions to culturally and historically significant sites with your program leader, a U.S. French teacher.
You’ll see a side of Toulouse that tourists usually miss. CIEE steeps you in the rich culture of this region – its food, art, natural beauty, and thousands of years of French and Roman history and architecture. Living with a local host family gives you plenty of time to practice French as you prepare and share meals, shop at local markets, and get in tune with the local customs and rhythms of everyday life.
