Summary

Four French immersion weekends for continuing education students at the University of Calgary were evaluated. Each weekend involved recreational activities for twenty students and four French-speaking monitors at one of two recreational retreats near Calgary. The purpose of the program was to promote fluency in French by encouraging its use in a variety of contexts in a relaxed setting. Sports, games, organized discussions, informal socializing, and meals were all part of the weekends' activities. Much of the evaluation is devoted to the role of the monitors, who had the responsibility of directing activities to maximize benefits to participating students. As models, teachers, advisors, and program directors, the monitors are judged to have done an outstanding job. A few recommendations for improving the program by attending to certain details (e.g., serving French food in the cafeteria) are offered. The evaluation questionnaire completed by students in the program is appended. (JB)
