L'ELUL, which finds its origins in the summer French language courses created by Universite Laval in 1938, is a fertile environment for the expression of multiculturalism in Quebec. The gate of entry for non-French-speaking students at Universite Laval, and an important place for students who want to broaden their horizons, I'EULU brings students together in its midst a considerable group of practitioners from diverse languages and cultures.

Quebec City
Known as the cradle of French civilization in North America, Quebec City is the capital of the province of Quebec and home to over 500,000 people. This historical city-the oldest in Canada and the only fortified city north of Mexico-is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its narrow, winding streets, the European cachet of its Latin quarter, and spectacular surroundings combine with the warmth and hospitality of its people to make it one of the most popular tourist destinations in North America. Renowned for its museums and numerous cultural events, Quebec City also affords numerous possibilities to lovers of the outdoors, with parks and natural sites such as the St. Lawrence River and the Laurentian Mountains close at hand.
