Bonjour! Get a taste of France without leaving North America. Moraine Valley Community College is offering a spring one-credit course that takes participants to Québec City, Canada, from April 29 to May 2.

Québec City is one of North America’s most European cities as well as an UNESCO world heritage site. Participants will explore the 400-year-old metropolis on a walking tour, visit Québec’s Parliament and have lunch in the senator’s dining room. Students visit Montmorency Falls, sample bread from Chez Marie’s roadside bread oven, stay at the famous Château Frontenac, and more.

To earn the class credit, students are required to attend three meetings on Moraine Valley’s campus prior to the trip and complete a field activity in Canada.

Participants need a valid passport to travel. The total cost is $1,885, plus tuition and fees. This includes airfare, most meals, hotel, shuttle to and from the airport, visits to museums, and tours.
