Program Information:
Turn Paris into your classroom over the course of four weeks during your Summer in Paris program. On the French Language Summer Program at the Institut Catholique de Paris (ICP), you’ll improve your spoken French skills and knowledge of French culture while living in the heart of this amazing city. Admire the intricate beauty of Notre Dame, sit and read in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, or practice your French by ordering a morning baguette on your way to class. Paris is famous for its romantic atmosphere, rich history, and incredible influence on fashion, design, art, cuisine, and culture. You’ll never tire of this city, so saisis le moment on your Summer in Paris!

Start getting excited about:
  • Paris – What can we say? Fountains, fashion, cafés, croissants . . . Paris has something for everyone, but especially art-lovers and budding artists!
  • Art and French in the City of Light – What better way to improve both your French-language and fine-arts skills than spending 4 weeks in Paris?
  • Learning in and out of the classroom – A great part of Summer in Paris is learning both in and out of the classroom. You won’t just read about a painting in class, you’ll go see it in person and really understand the artist’s perspective.
  • Living with fellow students in great local apartments – Live in the heart of it all in cool, furnished apartments and get to know the other CISabroad students from all over the US
On Summer in Paris, you will learn or polish up your French while taking unique fine-arts-related courses taught in English. You will live in the heart of Paris, just minutes from the Louvre, with all that this amazing city has to offer right outside your door. While your courses are technically classroom based, you’ll spend the majority of your class time out in the city painting, photographing, and drawing.
