The global village is 27 years old!


Since 1988, the CMEF has welcomed over 9 000 teenagers during the summer period, aged between 13 and 17 years old and coming from around the world. Between mid-June and the end of August, the Centre accommodates about 500 teenagers - a limited number which allows us to pay special attention to each and every student. The programme favours intercultural exchanges between young people.


A global educational concept.                                                                                                                                                                               

  • Learn French at your own pace and depending on your needs.                                                                                                           
  • Choose from a variety of sports or cultural activities in the afternoon and various forms of entertainment in the evening.                                                                                         
  • Share your room with young people from other countries, respecting safety regulations and the rules of living amongst others.


The international context of the CMEF, providing the opportunity for teenagers to meet other international students, encourages open-mindedness and prepares adolescents for the future.

All the French lessons are compulsory, as is Saturday’s weekly excursion. However, all evening and afternoon activities are optional in order for students to benefit from their independence. Nevertheless, our team leaders’ role is to encourage the students to take part in a maximum number of activities.



A quality of service and friendly supervision.


We have four teams of staff working together in order ensure a quality of service. At the height of the summer season, a total of 50 people work at CMEF with a maximum of 170 teenagers.


   The reception team welcomes, informs and advises teenagers, from 8am to 12.30 pm and from 2pm to 7pm.

Qualified staff is on site 24 hours a day. They handle all transfers to and from the centre as well as organising cultural and sports activities in the evening and supervise the dormitories, ensuring the well-being of the students. Working alongside the course leaders is our small security team, which controls access to CMEF around the clock.

Our team of housekeepers looks after the practical side of the campus: they manage the cafeteria and meal preparation, they clean the bedrooms and they maintain the overall cleanliness of the centre, not forgetting the upkeep of our fabulous garden of 3 hectares.
