Advanced Steps Program. Explore Itinerary in Canada

Even though Canada’s French-speaking population is supposed to be a bilingual English/French, the reality is that most of the population born in the French part of the country is either only French-speaker or is much more proficient in French that they are in English.

In order to change this, the Canadian Government put in place many years ago, the so-called, Explore Programs. These programs offer the possibility to Canadian French-speakers teenagers to take part in English Intensive Programs during the summer where they gain credits for school and improve their English thanks to classes, workshops, activities and the time spent with their Englishspeaking teachers, counselors and host families.

Although most of the students are French-Canadians, a small percentage of international students is also allowed to take part in these programs and theIEX offers its students the opportunity to participate in one of these high-quality and demanding programs.
