Schooling abroad

A genuine experience, relationships to learn and grow

A genuine experience, relationships to learn and grow

Throughout their schooling at Ombrosa, students have the opportunity to leave for several weeks to discover schooling in the countries of the languages they study.

They are welcomed in one of the 170 schools who maintain a partnership with Ombrosa (in the UK, Canada, Japan, Spain). Each voluntary student is then completely immersed into the daily life of his pen friend, his class, and his family (except for CE1 and CE2 students).

Here are the opportunities for abroad schooling:

  • CE1 – CE2 classes (G2/Y3 – G3/Y4): in the UK (one week in youth centres).
  • CM1 – CM2 classes (G4/Y5 – G5/Y6): in the UK (three weeks in immersion).
  • 6è class (G6/Y7): in the UK (three weeks in immersion) or in Canada (three weeks in immersion).
  • 5è class (G7/Y8): in Germany (three weeks in immersion) or in Canada (three weeks in immersion).
  • 4è class (G8/Y9): in Germany (three to five weeks in immersion) or in Japan (four weeks in immersion).
  • 3è class (G9/Y10): in Spain (two weeks in immersion), in Canada (three weeks in immersion – 3e international).
  • 2de class (G10/Y11): in Spain (two weeks in immersion), in Canada (three weeks in immersion – 3e Fr.) or in Japan (four weeks in immersion), or in China (4 weeks language trainning).
  • 1re class (G11/Y12):  in China (4 weeks language trainning).

Adjustments can allow the school to adapt this course individually, and to offer specific opportunities.

In order to benefit from the organisation of these schooling periods abroad, students must show a positive, voluntary and responsible attitude.
