groupe The global village is 30 years old!

Since 1988, the CMEF has welcomed over 12 000 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 in an international class at your level.
  • Choose your afternoon sports, cultural activities and evening entertainment, enjoy new group experiences and build cross-cultural friendships.
  • Share your room with young people of other nationalities, in tolerance and respect for collective rules and safety.

The international meeting at the CMEF contributes to the adolescents' open-mindedness and prepares them better for a globalized world.

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 more than 50 people work at CMEF with a maximum of 170 teenagers.

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





Qualified and carefully selected 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.
Course leader to child ratio: 1:9 or 1:10 (French Government standard: 1:12)
