*Due to the current situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the CIAF has decided to cancel the Summer 2021 French Immersion for FSL Teachers.

French Immersion for FSL Teachers

The French Immersion is a program designed for second language teachers who wish to address specific aspects of teaching French as a second language: didactics, language, etc. Courses are built around a series of educational activities that allow participants to evolve in a multidimensional approach. Trainees are invited to participate in an educational project designed around three components: language, education and language practice.

  • The language component allows course participants to improve both their oral and writing skills, based on their actual knowledge and in response to their needs.
  • The educational component gives course participants a theoretical approach they can later integrate with their own teaching methods.
  • The language practice component allows course participants to live in French during their stay in the Acadian Peninsula and gives them the chance to discover a stunningly beautiful region and a rich culture.

Target Clientele

French language teachers in the English school systems, whether they teach basic French or French immersion.

Dates for French Immersion in 2020

  • Session 1 - July 5 to July 17, 2020 (Intermediate and Advanced levels)
  • Session 2 - July 19 to July 31, 2020 (Intermediate and Advanced levels)

Cost

The cost of the course per 2 week session is $2,319.00 (including lodging, meals and guided cultural tours).
