French Immersion Course Comparison Table

How to choose your French language immersion course well

It is certainly difficult to compare the plethora of French immersion courses on the market. They all claim to be excellent, exceptionally efficient, and, at least the more reputable ones, also offer complete immersion in French language.
It therefore becomes necessary to compare what is on offer systematically. You will find below a table that will enable you to do this. It will help you to more clearly see and compare what each of your chosen language schools offers.

If you cannot find the relevant information in the literature or website of your chosen schools, do not hesitate to contact them. It is important to make an informed choice, knowing exactly what the price includes and what are the supplements that are not included in the basic price.
