Brébeuf, Marianopolis launch first-of-its-kind bilingual inter-collegiate exchange program

MONTREAL, Feb. 1 /CNW Telbec/ - Two of Montreal's prestigious private colleges, Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf and Marianopolis College, are joining forces to offer Quebec's first inter-college bilingual exchange program.

"This innovative program will promote bilingualism among anglophones, allophones and francophones because the exchange will be based on reciprocity: in their last semester of studies, an equal number of students from each school will be able to take advantage of this chance to perfect their knowledge of French or English, as the case may be," said Brébeuf Director General Michel April.

Marianopolis Director General Len Even said, "Marianopolis and Brébeuf share similar missions and student populations, as well as a long history of preparing the most motivated students for university. Throughout the decades, both colleges have boasted an unparalleled commitment to excellence; now we are embarking on a promising and strategic exchange program with a global perspective."

This new choice meets the curriculum requirements of MELS (the Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport). It will take participating students beyond language and beyond the classroom to total immersion in culture, clubs, sports and life in general at the host college.
