FIT

PLEASE NOTE: As it is not possible to hold an immersion program on campus at this time, this summer, we will be replacing FIT with a distance education program for teachers! Click here for more information.

Are you a teacher looking for a summer immersion experience? Improve your French and your second language teaching skills during FIT (French Immersion for Teachers), a three-week intensive program designed especially for teachers of French as a second language. Whatever your level of proficiency, you can improve your language skills, explore Francophone culture and discover French teaching resources.

Schedule

July 5 to 23, 2021
Classes run from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm, Monday to Friday.

Eligibility

Both programs are designed for teachers of French (English program) or French Immersion, and for teachers who would like to teach French as a second language. Education students graduating in 2021 are also welcome, and are eligible for the bursary for FIT, but not the bursary for Mini-FIT.

Education students who will be starting their final year in the Fall can enroll in FIT, but they are not eligible for the bursary. School staff who do not have a teaching permit, such as educational assistants or library technicians, may also be accepted in the FIT program, but are not eligible for the bursary.
