Is This Program Right For You?MICEFA Logo

Study Intensive French while enjoying the beauty that is Paris during the month of July!  Summer in Paris, life is good. Lots of sun, lovely boat rides on the Seine river, discovering the ins and outs of a city that you’ve only seen in history books is truly an awesome way to spend the month of July. Think of all the experiences you could have by just simply submitting your candidacy through the MICEFA program.


The core of the program consists of three-hour long classes, five days a week at the Catholic Institute of Paris. These classes, taken with other American and European students, focus on enabling the student to function in a Francophone environment with an emphasis on oral comprehetenses, sentence structure, etc). The course is worth 4 university credits for a total of 60 hours.
