Backed by more than 40 years of experience with international programs, Collège Saint-Charles-Garnier offers school groups the great opportunity to visit Québec City as part of a language immersion program tailored to their needs and schedule.
Our customized immersion program is designed for students from 14 to 17 years old as well as for teachers eager to learn French or improve their French skills. During a short-term stay in a French-speaking environment, the group will learn and practice French through real-life situations and will discover Québec’s culture and rich history.
We offer a safe environment, careful supervision, and regular feedback and follow-up. Thanks to our experience, we can provide students with the tools they need to learn and grow through interaction, culture, and knowledge.
We receive groups all year long, come and visit us for an immersion program of 3 days or more!
