Discover the elegance and charm of Parisian life while immersed in the language spoken by more than 100 million people! Students who attend this 4-week CIEE Global Navigator program will receive 60 hours of French language instruction and immerse themselves in this European capital of art, history, and good taste.
Learn and perfect your French with native professors. Explore the city’s rich heritage, one neighborhood or museum at a time. Discover hidden treasures during fieldtrips throughout France. Live with a local family and get into the rhythm of everyday life, sharing authentic French meals along with stories and traditions.
Living in Paris and visiting as a tourist are two entirely different things. The Eiffel Tower becomes a mere backdrop to an authentic experience like no other. Spend your mornings in French class, and your afternoons practicing your conversational skills in cafés, bookstores, markets and museums. Catch the strains of jazz or traditional French folk played by street musicians along the way. Meander through the city’s village-like neighborhoods, window-shopping outside Bohemian boutiques, or head to one of its elegant parks for a picnic.
Have a sweet tooth? You’re in luck! With classic patisseries on practically every corner, you’re never far from a tempting pain au chocolat, macaron or profiterole. Cake shops, tea rooms, bakeries and chocolatiers display their delicacies in delightful displays. Drink your coffee or luxurious hot chocolate at a neighborhood stop, rather than a chain, for the real experience.
