During my two weeks in the Edu-Inter program, l made many new friends and improved my French greatly. I was nervous about the experience at first, but later open minded to all aspects of the program. I gained lots of independence during my stay in Quebec doing things like taking the bus to and from school, walking around in Vieux Quebec, and spending time speaking French with my host family. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone willing to improve their French over the summer, one just have fun.

Edu-Inter was a great program for me. I had taken French classes in school but this was the first time I could really focus in speaking the language. While I was only here for two weeks, it was very enjoyable and I would love to come back again to continue improving my French. The classes, activities and school were great, but meeting people from all over the world was definitely my favorite part. I would highly recommend this program!


Melanie Shaw - Canada

I had never taken full immersion classes but now I understand why they are so effective. I have learned more in 2 weeks than I believe I could have in a month of private language classes in the states or a semester of college courses.
