Fantastic learning experience at Edu-Inter!
Submitted by Laurie de Gonzalez - Eugene United States | July 05, 2018
Edu-Inter is a fantastic program! I have been there in both the summer and winter and each time was exciting, fun and a very memorable experience. The staff and teachers were top-notch. My teacher made the classes completely engaging with interactive activities that ranged from clear grammar instruction to speaking, reading and writing practice. He created a warm atmosphere in which we all got to know each other and loved coming to class. In addition, I took full advantage of entertaining and educational after-school programs that allowed us to practice our French even more. Some of the summer activities included biking, an historic tour of the city, sharing an afternoon coffee at the revolving restaurant and going to an breath-taking outdoor acrobatic event. It is a "must do" to partake in all the outdoor winter activities such as cross-country skiing, sledding, visiting the ice hotel and ice skating. So much fun! Also, I thoroughly enjoyed my homestay experience. My host mother spoke with me only in French and we got along extremely well from the very start. It was a sheer delight to take part in all that Edu-Inter has to offer and I would highly recommend this program to all ages!
Outstanding immersion experience

Edu-inter is a great school. I have attended classes at Alliance Française and a French language school in France. This is the best language learning experience I have found.
I judge the schools on three criteria, 1.) the quality of the teachers. 2.) the curriculum, and 3.) the materials and support.
The teachers were outstanding. I spent twelve weeks in the school. I had a Swiss teacher in the first six weeks. I had a French teacher in the last six weeks. Both teachers were better than any other French teachers I have had in the past. They were creative, demanding, extremely professional and extraordinarily helpful. My French proficiency developed rapidly.
The curriculum was sensible. We were evaluated through an introductory interview and placed accordingly. There was sufficient flexibility to allow for fine tuning of the placement when appropriate. The use of French exclusively (or nearly so) is a part of the practical curriculum. French is spoken at meals and during breaks.
I chose to participate in the intensive program which included learning techniques like games, community interaction through practical exercises and weekly group presentations. In the final weeks of my stay, I had private and semi-private lessons which were very helpful.
An important part of the total learning experience was the extracurricular weekly activity schedule. This includes local tours of historical or cultural importance, as well as, day trips to the parks and other nature sites of interests.
All these options made for a truly immersive experience.
The materials and support facilitated the overall experience. The textbooks were very good and illustrated the grammar based on dialogue. Internet resources were introduced using videos and other free online learning platforms. The wifi permitted the use of online reference materials (dictionaries, conjugations, etc.) via smartphones.
The administrative team did an excellent job with arranging home stays or other accommodation options, banking assistance and practical information about getting around town. I always felt like I was welcome with my questions or requests for assistance.
Quebec is beautiful in the summer. It was a welcome break from the heat and humidity of Houston. It is also a very lively place with its Fête de la Saint-Jean-Baptiste (Québec National Holiday), Festival d'été de Québec (two week Summer Festival), New France Festival and many other activities and attractions around town. One other very important point, the Quebecois are very friendly and open. You can easily start a conversation with nearly everyone on the street.
For anyone from middle schoolers to retirees (like me) who are interested in learning French and experiencing the Quebec summers, I doubt you can beat Edu-inter.
Great French language program for adults!

I'm an English professor whose French language skills are at the immediate level. I found Inter-edu to be an effective and fun way to help me improve. The program evaluates your written and oral skills before placing you at the right level. Classes are small and taught by dynamic, experienced teachers. You can choose the intensive option and continue classroom study deep into the afternoon. In the evening, you can choose from different cultural activities in the beautiful city of Quebec. I had a wonderful time and left feeling I had improved my listening, writing, and oral skills. I'm looking forward to returning!
A teacher's summer

Knowing I would have a more demanding teaching schedule in September, I began looking for French immersion programs in the winter. I came across Edu-Inter online and began to plan for a way to temporarily abandon my family to take classes and experience a homestay. I found both in July, 2017, in Quebec with Edu-Inter. The registration/application process was easy and I always received a prompt email response to all my initial questions. The program was well-organized and I had a wonderful experience in my "famille d'accueil", despite a longer-than-expected trip to school each day by bus (now I am an expert!). The C1 class was intense and I learned a lot (la spiritualité/la religion chez les Québecois, et le vin). The French for French Teachers course was also very useful. I have already used ideas from both classes and resources that I received, here in NJ (USA). I highly recommend this program to French teachers (new & experienced). Don't be scared of "le québecois" - you will adapt to the differences in language quickly. The optional afternoon/evening & weekend excursions were varied (changed each week) and interesting. Take advantage of the city & surrounding area! Overall, a great program. I am looking forward to going back.

My 13 year old daughter who is shy and a beginner at French went to the 3 week multi activity camp this year and had a very positive experience. The host family included her in their family activities and took a proactive interest making her feel welcome. Her interaction with them were some of the best stories and clearly most memorable times of the trip. The French classes in the morning were a little overwhelming at first for her but she gradually became more comfortable about participating in the classes. I could definitely see the improvement and ease she had with the language upon returning home. The activities in the afternoons were fun and diverse enough to appeal to all students. My daughter will be attending the camp again next year.
