Montréal has mastered the art of living at the crossroads of tradition and transformation, a fine blend of bon vivant and je me souviens. For every humbling heritage site there's a mega music festival; for every authentic cabane à sucre there's a world-renowned food truck. Be it language, history, culture, or just plain fun, Montreal is never short on student travel opportunities.
Jumpstreet specializes in delivering student trips to Montreal that best reflect the city's dynamic spirit - it is, after all, our home! That's why our first official Oui French Montréal Summit will take you into the heart of the thrill and intrigue that put our city on the map. Taking place June 21-22, 2014, this two-day itinerary promises enriching and exclusive immersion activities that you and your students will love, including an epic evening at Les Francofolies, the biggest and most diverse international French music festival in the world. What better way to reward your French students than with a thrilling class trip to a world capital of French-flavoured fun?
Here are three of many reasons why you and your French class are going to adore this itinerary:
- Total immersion: This student travel program is designed to get your students practicing the language that you've been teaching them. Fantastic French-speaking workshops and activities; a young, bilingual tour leader who will bring Montréal to life while speaking in the city's mother tongue. Your students will be having so much fun immersed in the French language that they won't even realize they're speaking it!
