What is Destination Clic?
Bilingualism in Action
Destination Clic is an experiential summer program for francophone students living outside Quebec. The program is aimed at nurturing their sense of belonging and identity with the francophone community and enhancing their French-speaking skills.
Why apply to the Destination Clic summer program?
Through Destination Clic, participants will have the opportunity to enhance their French-speaking skills with confidence, while making new francophone friends from across Canada as well as memories to last a lifetime. Destination Clic is an exciting opportunity for young people to:
- Engage in French workshops, activities, and excursions, over a 19- to 21-day program
- Immerse themselves in fun, vibrant francophone culture
- Connect with other francophone youth from across Canada
- Live on campus
- Boost their self-confidence and independence, while building new skills and gaining a sense of autonomy
The objective of the program is to create as much of an immersion-like atmosphere as possible so that you are exposed to the French language at all times. Participants will be encouraged by teachers and monitors to speak their first language in their classrooms and during all activities.
The program is for levels intermediate to advanced. Prior to the start of the program, participants will be given a placement test that will determine their level and place them in a class accordingly. Classes are taught by instructors who are not only sensitive to their language needs, but also qualified, experienced, and current in second language methodology. At the graduation ceremony, participants will receive a certificate of completion.
