French Summer Institutes

Take time this summer to enhance your French language skills. Our lively and interactive summer institutes focus on the practical application of French through conversation and cultural experiences in a supportive, small group environment.

Our courses are taught by a team of engaging, passionate instructors who are experienced in adult education. Many have graduate degrees, and all are native speakers who bring their unique francophone cultures to each lesson.

  • Delivered in an immersive in-class setting
  • Choose from one-, two- or three-week summer institutes
  • Option of mornings-only or full-day courses in July
  • Costs between CAD$520 and CAD$1,155
  • Offered at the UBC Point Grey campus and at UBC Robson Square
  • Bursaries are available for BC teachers (Please note all bursary funds for 2019 have been awarded. You can still apply for a bursary, however, and we will add you to our waitlist.)

Summer 2019 Courses
Mornings-only summer institutes focus on conversational language skills, while full-day summer institutes feature afternoon cultural activities that complement your learning by giving you an opportunity to practise your language skills in real-life contexts. Enjoy excursions and workshops that may include cheese tasting, a UBC farm tour, wine appreciation, croissant making, and celebrations of francophone holidays.
