I had a great time at Edu-Inter! Even though I was at the school a short time, it was a lovely experience. The main outcome achieved was the self-confidence to express myself in a language I had been learning for a long time, and the activities throughout the week helped me enormously. The teachers presented everything in a humorous but helpful way that made the week fly by very quickly. Highly recommended, and I will definitely return!

I participated in Edu-inter’s two week intensive program. The school was extremely helpful in organising my entire program, including the stay with my host family. The program was entirely in French, which greatly improved my language skills in just the two weeks. In addition to this, the school was located not too far from Old Quebec and other attractions. I would definitely recommend a visit to Edu-Inter for anyone trying to immerse themselves and improve their French!

I am an older student. After studying with Duolingo and audio lessons for a few months, I realized that the only way to truly learn French was to speak it. So, I signed up for 4 weeks of Edu-Inter French immersion at five hours each day. I was concerned that the classes might be over my head. And yes, the first few days of French immersion were tough, but before the end of the first week I began to get the hang of it. By the last week of class I was even able to make bad jokes in French. My crowning achievement was the ability to order in restaurants and shops without the server coming back to me in English (everyone here speaks some English). Now, at the end of my stay, my French is still a work in progress. I still put together sentences a little like jigsaw pieces, but sometimes something fluent squirts out of my mouth… cool!. I may just come back next year for another month. I highly recommend Edu-inter. Oh… and Quebec is a lovely city!
