What are we talking about?

It is a program where young people aged 14 to 18 can spend 3 months to a year in a school or high school in France or abroad.

It offers the possibility of discovering the country, the culture and at the same time improving one’s language skills.

During their stay, the student will participate in each of the school’s activities like any other student and may, upon return to his country, validate the time spent in the selected country with his local authorities.

Accommodation during their studies will be with a host family supervised by a team of local representatives. It includes room and board, with 3 meals a day. This High School program is a great opportunity for young students to explore the country and learn more about its traditions, culture and history.

Better knowledge of the world for successful adaptation

Little by little, you will gain independence and maturity. Being able to express yourself in a foreign language is a great advantage for your future.

How will my future host family be ?

The families participating in this program are families who love to travel, learn about other cultures and have a very open mind. But they also want to share with you their daily life and their local customs, activities and leisure trips.
There is no better way to immerse yourself in another culture than to live with a host family. You will live with her as if you were in your own family. You will have at your disposal a room (which could be shared with a person of the same sex) and meals.
All families participating in the program are supervised by a local coordinator. The family can be located in any region of France (small or large city) and you will have to accept the placement that we will offer you.
