 ABOUT THIS PROGRAM


This program is led by NAU faculty member Professor Nicole Bauge.
 
This course will be an immersion experience in Vichy, in conjunction with the intensive French course at the CAVILAM institute.  The CAVILAM institute is affiliated with the University Blaise Pascal in Clermont-Ferrand.  Immersion is the best way to improve second language skills as well as provide a general multicultural education experience for students. Being in a small town in the center of France this summer, will make this invaluable experience possible.  The program will complement the courses currently offered by the Modern Languages Department.
 
Cross-cultural activities and excursions will allow students to engage with the local culture, learn about French history, and improve their language skills.  The additional culture course will focus on French culture, personal experiences and individual research.
 
The French language will be used as much as possible according to the student's level of proficiency.
 

REQUIREMENTS
