The Learn French and Work program is an effective French immersion program that allows students to achieve a high level of fluency in French, to gain valuable work experience in a French-speaking environment and to earn money to subsidize their stay in Quebec City. The program is divided in two components: the French courses and a work experience.

Please note that the French & Work Experience program is only offered to Canadian citizens and to holders of a Working Holiday Visa.
