The Language Immersion Program is an educational and cultural experience designed to immerse participants in their target language. The program offers a wide range of benefits such as:

  • Learning or improving French or English skills through an accelerated and immersive experience;
  • Connecting with other people from across Canada;
  • Experiencing a different culture and way of life;
  • Building confidence by practising French or English with fellow language learners;
  • Developing independence by traveling to and living in another part of the world.

Being part of a thriving international network makes coming to Glendon a rewarding experience for those looking for an intimate campus environment with large-scale impact.
