July in Noumea, New Caledonia Short-term Study Abroad
Centre de Rencontres et d’Échanges Internationaux du Pacifique (CREIPAC)
|Program description||Founded in 1980, the Centre de Rencontres et d’Échanges Internationaux du Pacifique (CREIPAC) is dedicated to the promotion of the French language in the Pacific area. The Centre is located on a largely un-developed peninsula just two kilometres west of Noumea, and consists of charming, old historical buildings by the sea, set amid frangipanis and palm trees.
This program allows students to immerse themselves in the French language and culture without the inconvenience (time and cost) of travelling all the way to France! Nearby New Caledonia, a French overseas territory and archipelago, provides a perfect setting for French language study, combining the language and culture of France with a pristine Pacific island backdrop.
Through small, personalised French language courses, students will be able to improve their formal language foundation. Students will also have the chance to practice their French in daily activities through the French-inspired cafes and restaurants, as the vast majority of residents (about 98%) speak French. Students can choose from six levels of French language and all levels of French are catered to, from absolute beginner to advanced.
