Joie de vivre may be an overly used phrase, but there’s a reason why we use the French words for “the joy of living” in every language! Gap year French immersion programs in France could be anything from a language course on the French Riviera in Nice or surrounded by arts and culture in Lyon, to a combination of French language studies and work experience in Paris, or an academic year in the wonderfully student-friendly, bohemian city of Montpellier.
Spend your days learning and perfecting your French, your nights heading out to the bars with your new French friends and your weekends picnicking in Paris’ historic parks or at Montpellier’s nearby natural beaches. There’s no better way to improve your language skills than in full immersion, and living an authentic, local life combined with your language course is the perfect way to do it. Welcome to your gap year language course in France!
