Program Description

Global Temple Conference

Spend an unforgettable summer in Paris studying French at the Sorbonne, one of the world’s great universities. Temple University’s program allows you to further your study of French language and culture with intensive in-class language instruction while exploring life in the great city of Paris. 

Sorbonne language courses are designed to fit individual needs; whether you are a student with basic French or a student with more experience, you will enroll in a course appropriate for your language level. The course includes a phonetics laboratory component which will guide you in honing your speaking skills. As a supplement to classroom instruction, you will have the opportunity to attend optional lectures on various aspects of French life.

Outside of the classroom, you will have ample time to explore Paris, using your French in a variety of real-life settings. Whether you are having dinner at a lively café, taking part in a Bastille Day celebration, cheering on cyclists in the Tour de France, or attending one of the various music, theater, dance or film festivals, Paris is alive with activity during the summer. A Temple faculty member who serves as your on-site director, will also coordinate a variety of separate full-day excursions during the first week of orientation in Paris.
