API at the Université de Caen, Basse-Normandie in Caen

French Language and Culture Program: This program is designed to help students who wish to study abroad in Caen improve their written and spoken French (via grammar, vocabulary and language activities), as well as increase the students’ knowledge of various areas of French culture and civilization. All students will take courses at the Carré International (International Square/Center), a department at the Université de Caen, Basse-Normandie that specializes in French language instruction. All classes at the CEFE are taught in French. Level of French study is based on a placement exam administered before classes begin by the CEFE. Intensive Language Summer Program: This program is designed to provide summer students who wish to study abroad in Caen with the necessary language tools for an immediate immersion into French civilization and way of life, and to enable them to gain a sufficient autonomy in a various range of communication situations. Students have 20 hours of language training each week for 3 weeks for a total of 60 contact hours, or 4 U.S. semester credits. HIGHLIGHTS Caen is located in the heart of Normandy: a few miles from the coast, the landing beaches, the bustling resort of Deauville and Cabourg, Norman Switzerland or Pays d’Auge and two hours northwest of Paris. As the city of William the Conqueror and as a key site of the Battle of Normandy in the Second World War, Caen is well known for its history. The city has preserved the memory by erecting a memorial of peace: the Caen Memorial Museum. Normandy offers picturesque villages, green pastures, a warm welcome and it is the ideal spot for water-sports, hiking, horse riding and all open-air activities. Students will find it difficult to choose from the many places of interest to visit, or to choose from among the countless activities available. In Caen there is something for you whether your interest lies in history, art, architecture, gastronomy and sport or just enjoying the countryside. Caen is the perfect place to study and enjoy life!

HIGHLIGHTS
The dramatic and romantic appeal of Edinburgh is endless, set atop its volcanic crags with medieval cobble-stoned streets, a majestic castle and a skyline of turrets, domes and spires. It is easy to see where the inspiration for Harry Potter came from! The elegant Georgian facades of the New Town are a contrast to the winding, twisting alleys and hidden courtyards of the medieval Old Town. Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city, is not just a historic city, it is also forward looking, seat of the Scottish Parliament and boasting a vibrant cultural scene of live music, performing arts, galleries and museums and plenty of buzz. It is a great place for students, who make up 20% of the population and is home to one of the largest arts festivals in the world. Overlooked by the extinct volcano of Arthur’s Seat, sitting in the open parkland of Holyrood Park, Edinburgh is one of the greenest cities in the UK.
