Salisbury University students can study intensive French at the introductory through advanced level or French Language, Culture, and Civilization for students with higher French language skills in the beautiful southern French Alpes at the Centre Universitaire d’Études Françaises (CUEF) at Université Stendhal – Grenoble III through SU's long-term affiliated study abroad partner, Academic Programs International.
The setting of the alpine city of Grenoble is what truly makes it unique. For a panoramic view of the city and surrounding mountains, take a ride on the telepherique, or cable car, to the Fort de la Bastille. From there, explore the hiking trails and the Grottes (caves) that were used as a defence many centuries ago. With a student population of 60,000, Grenoble is an ideal place to learn French. The slower pace of the city and the friendliness of the inhabitants make it easy to practice the language with locals. the city has several museums, numerous parks and plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities (skiing, hiking, biking). For the avid traveler, Grenoble is an excellent starting point for exploration, situated only three hours from Paris by high speed train and ver close to Switzerland and Italy.
