Teachers & Monitors

During extra-curricular activities, you will be strongly encouraged to use French so you can get used to thinking in the language!

One of the main strengths of this program is the quality of the monitors or animateurs who are in charge of the leisure and culture program. These native French speaking locals are very passionate about their culture and are keen to share all that Paris and the surrounding area have to offer!
