Tufts in Annecy: June

College students and adults who want to improve their beginner or

language institute in Annecy by native French speakers who are
experts in developing speaking, listening, grammar, writing, and
reading skills. Residing with a French family facilitates language
acquisition and enhances the exploration of French customs and
culture. Tufts students will earn one full credit for a Tufts French

hiking, swimming and a variety of other outdoor activities.
