This is how Charmaine started learning French language. Watch the video to learn about this unique opportunity to learn French.

What is Explore Program

Explore is a five-week intensive French-immersion bursary program. The participants spend their spring or summer learning French language along with exploring a region in Quebec or New Brunswick provinces. The program is funded by government which means all you have to pay to participate is a small registration fee. All expenses including French class tuition, material for the class, accommodation fees and even food expenses are covered by a government bursary. All you have to do is to apply for the program and get there after you are accepted. One of the biggest advantages of learning French language with Explore is you also discover a new region in your country. The program offers lots of cultural activities, trips and exploring opportunities. This enables you to immerse yourself in the culture while learning the language.
