Wish you remembered more of that college French? Make your way to Quebec City to learn basic French vocabulary and phrases tailored for the traveler in a fun, relaxed way, with French Canada’s most charming city at your disposal for practice. In workshops and activities with local French speakers, learn how to use these tools to “get along” in French, even with shaky grammar, and apply what you’ve learned not only amid the Old World atmosphere of Old Quebec, but also in local markets on the Isle of Orleans and at towering Montmorency Falls.


• Discover the true meaning of the French vocabulary found in everyday English — cul de sac, voila, déjà vu, à la mode, entrée, garage and more.
• Explore rural Quebec on the Isle of Orleans and enjoy unique island products — chocolate and ice wine.
• Revel in the ambience of a “House Party” — a fine Valcartier tradition — where you interact with local musicians and learn about melodies unique to this area.
