Incredible program! I spent only a week here but I wish I could stay longer.

The staff were very transparent and friendly from the start. They offered tons of reading material to prepare me for not only the program but also Quebec City. I was given a written test to determine my level prior to arrival.

On my first day, the students were greeted at the school entrance and given orientation by the founder and director of of school. I was given an oral test to confirm and/or adjust my level. Then I was placed in the appropriate class.

My class was amazing! I loved the teacher, Paola, who was warm, fun, engaging, and knowledgeable. She kept a high bar and ensured we all had the opportunity to speak, participate, and practice the language. The games were all very fun and reinforced very well the grammatical concepts. My only regret is that I did not book a longer session. I will be back one day!

I found the in-person immersion French language class (level A0) at Edu-inter very helpful in developing French language skills. Starting with no French at all, I was able to construct simple 3 to 5 word sentences after 2 weeks of intensive learning and practice. This included videos, readings, simulations and regular in class practice sessions after each learning module. I also had a good teacher Mr. Jefferson that worked with me and the other students (there were only 6 of us). There was very little English spoken in the class from day one and the teacher was very patient and made sure we all understood each step of the learning. C’est un bon cours!!

What a wonderful experience to go back to school as an adult and improve my French! Anne Marie is a gifted teacher who used a wide variety of activities to make learning fun!! I was fortunate to stay with a host family that was cheerful and happy to have me stay with them!! I can’t wait to come back!!

Location and Facilities

The French & Music program is offered in beautiful Quebec City, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and the only major city in Canada that offers a 100% French-speaking environment. As the cradle of francophone culture in the Americas, Quebec City offers an unparalleled opportunity for French immersion. The school is centrally located on the Collège Mérici campus in downtown Quebec City, close to major tourist and cultural attractions. On-site facilities include a gymnasium, aerobics room, library, computer labs, an internet cafe, cafeteria, a student lounge and ample green spaces.

The Conservatoire de Musique et d’Art Dramatique du Québec is the most important music school in Quebec. As part of the Quebec government’s system of conservatories across the province, this school provides excellence in music training at all levels.

The facilities include soundproof practice rooms and students bring their own instruments, or can use or rent those available on-site (subject to availability). The Conservatoire is located within short walking distance of Collège Mérici.


The French & Music program includes 15 hours of language classes and 10 to 15 hours of music training and practice per week. Develop your reading, writing, speaking, and comprehension skills in the morning and in the afternoon, receive professional music training and take advantage of the soundproof rooms to practice.

The program is designed for students who already have a background in music. You will fill out a questionnaire before you arrive so that the conservatory can identify your instrument of choice and place you with a suitable instructor. Part of the time will be spent training with an instructor in private or group lessons, and part of the time will be spent practicing.
