Daughter has had 2 great summers

Our daughter has traveled from Texas to Quebec for two consecutive summers for French immersion. She's had a wonderful experience both times. Each visit she was able to advance 2 levels with her French. Her second visit was even more extraordinary given that she was already familiar with the fun program and beautiful city. She had such warm and accommodating homestay families and has kept in touch with friends she met. We highly recommend this program !! Our daughter was 16 and 17 years of age.

French immersion in Québec

Québec City is a gem with its unique French Canadian culture. I started studying French two years ago and in August 2016 went to Québec City for the weekend to put it into practice. The people of the city were so accepting and patient as I struggled to speak with them in French that I decided to look for an immersion program. I found Edu-inter.

Unsure of what to expect, I signed up for one week starting June 19, 2017. As soon as I was done, I was inquiring returning. The school welcomes students of all ages from around the globe for varying lengths of stay. Even though I was older than most of the students, I felt completely at ease. I was welcomed by the teachers from the very first day and even after I returned home, corrected assignments were emailed to me. A full week of total immersion at Edu-inter (Super-Intensive program) and in Québec City boosted my confidence. I definitely plan on returning.

Studying French in beautiful Quebec

I spent two weeks in the super intensive program at Edu-Inter. The staff quickly assessed my rather unorthodox French language skills and assigned me to just the right level class. I enjoyed the academic work which was challenging and engaging. The other students were welcoming and helpful. I opted for the home stay option within a 30 minute walk of the school and that was perfect for me. My hostess was delightful and made lovely meals for me every day. I liked having the opportunity to speak French outside of class and over the weekends. Quebec is a lovely city to walk through and I was happy to have the opportunity to take different routes each day to school so I could get a sense of the city. I was a little nervous going to a school that I only knew through the Internet and living for two weeks with a complete stranger but it turned out to be an exceptional experience and truly worth the gamble. My only regret is that I could not stay longer.

Older adult at Edu-inter in Quebec

I am an older adult (semi-retired) and spent a week at Edu-inter learning French. The program is administered professionally and is excellent. I had a combination of didactic and semi-private conversational classes that were superb. My teacher was outstanding (Mme Lord) and was able to explain everything in French, even to a beginner like me! My stay with the host family was very good and my host treated me as a family member. He gave me a tour of the city and the bus system on the first day, so that I could take it to school every day. The bus system is a very efficient, easy, and not difficult at all. Quebec and the Quebecois are wonderful, kind and welcoming. It is one of the safest cities in the world. The best compliment that I can give, is that I plan to go back for another session at Edu-inter and continue to improve my knowledge of French.

Outstanding language school, far exceeding my expectations

I attended Edu-Inter’s Super-Intensive French program for 7 weeks. I started at level 3 (A1.1) and finished in level 7 (B2.2). I had only taken one semester of French before arrival. The teachers are excellent, but, more importantly, the staff members of Edu-Inter work with students to practice French outside of the classroom in dealing with day-to-day needs—a “French-only” policy is strictly enforced. Therefore, paying a bill become a learning situation using French with Keven, or discussing lodgings with Julie, running into Zorica in the elevator, chatting with Yan, Vanessa, Tommy, Guillaume, or even meeting previous instructors, in the hallways and staircases during breaks. This encourages students not just to learn French but to feel comfortable using it inside and outside of Edu-Inter. I am a Ph.D. candidate at Harvard University, and I need French to take literature courses in French. After my time at Edu-Inter, I have the confidence that I would not have been able to acquire in such a short time of language instruction; and this is what Edu-Inter means by “immersion”—feeling comfortable in the language. I would definitely return to study at Edu-Inter and recommend it to anyone interested in studying French. Be assured that before and during your time at Edu-Inter, the staff will work with you to accommodate any insecurities you may be feeling, especially at the beginning, as is normal in any language program. Tommy patiently exchanged nearly 40 emails with me answering questions and working with me to find the appropriate program and time frame for my studies. A very special thanks to all of the Edu-Inter instructors and staff for what I have accomplished, and a profound thank-you to Guillaume, the academic administrator, for his support throughout my time in the program.

La meilleure méthode pour prendre le francais

je suis tellement contente de prendre le français avec Edu-Inter, parce que, il est très nécessaire d'avoir toute l'immersion dans la langue qu'on doit apprendre et ici je l'ai obtenue. Et surtout, les activités qui se font en salle de classe, a l extérieur de l'école, ont fait que mon français soit très claire pour moi. De plus, l'environ est très beau, l'école n'est pas chère et le personnel avec qui on travaille sont des belles personnes.

Realmente uma experiência Quebecois!

É a segunda vez que venho ao Québec para estudar francês e ter contato com a cultura quebecois, escolhi a Eduinter, pela boa acolhida, programa de aulas e atividades sempre muito interessantes e enriquecedoras.
O comprometimento do meu professor (Simon) em sempre esclarecer qualquer duvida e deixar o aprendizado de uma nova lingua mais facil foi surpreendente!
Progredi meu francês e consegui os resultados esperados. C'est super!

La Vie d'une Nouvelle Québécoise

Living in Quebec is like living in a completely different country, while still in Canada. The language, views, and lifestyle are all unique factors in making Quebec a destination for an experience of a lifetime. Edu-Inter helps aid in this experience with its structured program and well rounded activities. You will find yourself not only learning a new language here, but learning more yourself. Edu-Inter gives that unconditional acceptance to help you do so.

Outstanding!

When I first arrived in Quebec City I instantly fell in love! Quebec City is very tourist friendly and the view is breathtaking. In my opinion Edu-Inter is a very effective program to learn french because they push you beyond your limits and at the same time you make lifetime friends from all over the world. My host family went above and beyond to make my stay enjoyable and comfortable. I will never forget the special memories I made with them. I recommend this 5 star program to anyone, you won't be disappointed!

Edu-inter

Edu-inter has provided me with a truly genuine French immersion experience. The school is very flexible with it`s acceptance of students every monday and it`s ability to cater to the specific needs of students in course offerings. I feel very lucky to have found the program, with my unique situation of bringing two of my young children here, to live with an excellent host family. After eight weeks of study I am ready to bring our family back together. I will be retourning home with a great boost in my french language skills and a 1 and a 2 year old who comprehend French, thanks to a local daycare that Edu-inter helped me find. Génial!!

Mon expérience à Québec.

L'école est l'une des meilleures institutions ou j'ai étudié. La combinaison des classes et les activités qu'on fait dans les cours de conversation sont tellement efficaces.Les activités que les professeurs utilisent ont l'air d'être des taches simples mais, même si on joue seulement, toutes ces choses sont les petites répétitions dont on a besoin pour vraiment commencer a utiliser les sujets qu'on vient d'étudier chaque jour, et pour essayer de maîtriser une langue.

A dominican in Edu inter

Well, first of all, im from the Dominican Republic and went to college Merici to study french with the EDU INTER PROGRAM, but, i was not with the whole program of staying at home, its a great program, you learn a lot, you communicate with the teachers and theres a cool enviroment, not only the classes but the fieldtrips that you make, the people that you get to know, i highly recommend this program for any fellow latino, you have mejicanos, colombianos,uruguayos under the same roof, also you have people from Montreal that only speak english and they would like to learn some french.- Theres a lot of culture and art involved in Quebec, in my words, Quebec it is Europe for the poor hahaha, i recommend the gastronomy, the restaurants are lovely and with great dishes, edu inter opened my eyes to the world that is out there and if you take your french courses seriously, youll do great

Great Experience!

When we were looking for a French immersion program for our 15 year old son, we had trouble finding reviews for any programs and the few for the Edu-inter program in Quebec City were negative. We were nervous, but after corresponding with a representative of the program decided to go ahead. So glad we did! Our son spent two weeks at the program in July and had an amazing experience. He stayed on the campus and spent the morning in French class and in the afternoons participated in horseback riding for a week and multi-activity camp for a week. He loved every minute of the experience and really improved his French language skills. He had a fantastic French teacher and made many friends from around the world. Attending during the Quebec summer festival was terrific. He loved the horseback riding at the beautiful stables 20 minutes from the school but found that most of the other students participated in the multi-activity program. The administration was great at communicating with us the details. We would highly recommend the Edu-inter teen French immersion program.

French immersion in Quebec

This program was fantastic! I cannot say enough the warmth, kindness and diligence of the staff and instructors. I was appropriately placed in my level (which many programs struggle with). The class focused on the 4 skills, culture and history. The instructors are flexible enough to allow for student activity and content suggestions. There is a program for everyone at every level with every interest and I appreciate the variety of options. They also have plenty of cultural activities scheduled after class every day so you get to know Quebec very well. This was my first time in Quebec and at Edu Inter and I would return in a heartbeat. The location is fantastic, only a beautiful walk to Old Quebec. Edu Inter cares you, your learning and showing you what a beautiful area Quebec City is.

A Great Way to be Immersed in the French Language and Culture

My stay at Edu-Inter was above my expectations. The host family was very accommodating and provided a family atmosphere that encouraged conversation in French. I wish I could have stayed longer, but I will stay longer next time. The teaching methods encourage reading, writing and conversation.

Meine kulturelle und sprachliche Erfahrung in Quebec

Ich habe drei Wochen bei Edu-Inter Französisch studiert. In Deutschland habe ich zuvor noch nie Französisch in der Schule gehabt. Bei Edu-Inter wird nur Französisch gesprochen, wodurch man sehr schnell in die Sprache hineinfindet. Die Lehrer sind sehr sympatisch und für alle Fragen offen und man kann sehr schnell seine sprachlichen Fähigkeiten verbessern. Nach meinen Kurs ist es mir jetzt möglich mich in Französisch zu verständigen. Ich bedanke mich bei der Schule für das gute Programm, was meine Entwicklung in Französisch sehr geholfen hat. Auch die Stadt Quebec ist wunderschön und ich empfehle jeden hier einmal zu wohnen.

Édu-Inter - First Rate Language School

I studied at Édu-Inter for 3.5 months, hoping to enhance my level of French in order to return to Ontario to find a job teaching French in the public education system. I am very pleased with the progress that I have made and attribute it equally to the excellent teaching that I received during my intensive French classes and to the unique homestay program that is offered through Édu-Inter. Everyone whom I met in Québec was warm and welcoming and were genuine in their efforts to help me immerse myself in the language and culture: it was definitely a special experience that I will not soon forget.

Mi experiencia con EduInter

Mi nombre es Cinthia y soy peruana. Cuando llegue a Quebec City hace 6 semanas no sabia casi nada de frances y me sentia perdida porque estaba viviendo en una ciudad completamente francofona. Por lo tanto, decidi inscribirme en Edu Inter para poder aprender el idioma. La experiencia fue totalmente positiva porque la escuela tiene una politica de hablar unicamente en frances entre los estudiantes y el staff de EduInter. Ademas, mi profesora de nivel principiante tenia mucha paciencia y las clases eran muy dinamicas, a pesar de tener un nivel basico del idioma. La escuela esta equipada con todos las herramientas necesarias como una biblioteca, cafeteria, gimnasio, entre otros. Me siento feliz de haber elegido a EduInter como mi escuela de frances porque puedo regresar a Peru satisfecha de haber aprendido el idioma, conocer personas de todo el mundo y de haber vivido en Quebec, una ciudad segura que tiene mucho encanto.

3 semanas estudiando francés

A pesar de que mi estadía fue corta en el programa, aprendí rápidamente el francés.
Fue una muy grata experiencia, superó todas mis expectativas.
Estudiar el idioma fue mucho más fácil de lo que pensé, gracias a la profesora, que nos ayudó muchísimo y buscó siempre la mejor manera para que podamos aprender.

Charlie`s Review

Edu-Inter is a great program that really helped me improve my French. The teachers and administration are very supportive and helpful and really take a priority in making sure the students understand the material. They really take the time for their students and the classes are well organized and even fun!

I took French immersion courses in primary and high school and I picked this program to improve my French after not studying French for over 5 years. I found the courses very organized and flexible and I was finally understanding material I never really understood in all my years studying in the past. It was finally sinking in.

It was great to live in Quebec City and be in the heart of Quebecois culture and history. I`ve made friends from all over the world and I even became involved in a French play. I highly recommend this program and I can`t wait to visit Quebec City again!
