VISIT QUEBEC recommends ACIS’s extensive menu of carefully planned educational tours to Quebec City for students and teachers of French.
We have seen them all over the years, and there are none better.
The historic Chateau Frontenac (above) dominates Quebec City’s Skyline on a winter’s eve.
ACIS offers multiple three-day, four-day and five-day, winter, summer, spring and fall French trips to Québec City, the cradle of French Civilization in North America.
Wintertime activities include tobogganing on the Terrasse Dufferin outside the Chateau, visits to the Hotel de Glace (Ice Hotel) and to Village Vacances, the largest winter sports park in North America, or a morning or afternoon dog-sledding excursion in the Quebec countryside.
Spring and summer trips can include an evening dance cruise on the St. Lawrence River, and visits to Montmorency Falls and the Basilique Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré.
ACIS’s approach to teaching French rests on the premise that unless students are fascinated with the people, history and culture of the French-speaking world on some level, they won’t stay interested in studying the language in the long run. If this theory is valid, Quebec City is a wonderful place to be captivated. Seeing is believing, and speaking French outside the classroom, in the real world, is believing too.
All ACIS’s groups are led by licensed, experienced, fully bilingual, native francophone tour managers and they will be happy to lead your trip in all French, all English or any combination of the two.
If there are better educational tour itineraries anywhere, VISIT QUEBEC has never seen any.
