The KIIS Paris II summer program offers Paris as its classroom. Designed to take full advantage of the city’s abundant cultural resources, the Paris II program offers students a selection of advanced French-language courses in the renowned "city of lights." From the Louvre to the Musee d'Orsay,
Notre Dame to Sacre Coeur, and Montmartre to Montparnasse, students do not merely visit Paris but have the time to make it their own.
With five weeks in Paris, students become intimately familiar with this modern, cosmopolitan city, celebrated for its savoir-faire and joie de vivre. Students are encouraged to use their language skills both in class and while exploring the many sides of this marvelous city. In short, the language experience does not end after exiting the classroom— it only begins as you set out to explore Paris’s venerable architecture, parks, neighborhoods, restaurants, and cafés.
The program is designed to offer students a balance between structured time for classes, program activities, and excursions and unstructured time for study, completion of group projects, and pursuit of individual interests (including travel). Group excurcions include a visit to the Orangerie, a bike trip to Giverny, a picnic, the theater, and learning to play petanque. These and other activities offer students ample opportunity to strengthen their knowledge of French language and culture.
An unlimited Navigo metro/bus pass enables students to travel with ease throughout Paris. On select weekends, students can travel independently to locations in France and beyond.
Please note: Students wishing to participate in the Paris II program must have at least 12 hours of college-level French or the equivalent at time of departure.
