Improve your French while discovering the unique traditions and breathtaking landscapes of Brittany. Set in the lively city of Rennes, this CIEE Global Navigator program offers a challenging alternative to our most motivated French learners. Students will receive 60 hours of French language instruction (and 4 college credits).

Open exclusively to students with two years of High School French and above, this program requires that participants speak French at all times. So get ready for a full immersion!

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 regular group gatherings and guided excursions to culturally and historically significant sites with your program leader, a U.S. French teacher.

Full immersion means you’ll also have daily opportunities to practice French with your host family as you prepare and share meals, shop in authentic markets, and learn local customs. There’s also plenty of free time to hang out with new friends, grab a coffee and plate of crepes, and take in the sights and sounds of local village life.
