EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. Minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Move beyond salut and ça va as you delve into the language of amour, Voltaire and diplomacy in a three-week, intensive program. Increase vocabulary, learn conversational skills and improve writing/speaking in the state-of-the-art computer phonetics lab and via instruction from native speakers. Forget shyness and converse with locals in the charming city of Trois-Rivières, in French Canada’s cultural heartland. From forgotten memories of high school French, leave with Québec’s motto Je me souviens — “I remember.”


• Converse en francais as you try ordering poutine, and discover la culture and l’histoire in presentations on Quebec's people, music and politics.
• Discover the old-world charms and architecture of Québec City, such as the Château-Frontenac, Petit-Champlain district and the old port.
• Experience Cap-de-la-Madeleine to admire the ornate stained-glass windows of Nôtre-Dame-du-Cap shrine.

Activity Notes
