Total immersion

Total immersion is a tried-and-tested way to make progress in a foreign language, developing both fluency and confidence and exploring the culture, customs and history underpinning the language. As you make progress, you will share experiences with your host family and discover their way of life. Our partner guarantees that you will be the only native speaker of your first language in your homestay, meaning you have absolutely no opportunity to revert back into your native language.

Flexibility and communication are key! In addition to that, students should be sociable, open-minded, responsive and very willing to share their lives and ideas with a new family. It is essential tht you adapt to a new culture while you are there, as you will be completely immersed within a foreign culture and language constantly. To get the most out of your stay, we also recommend that students have at least 2 to 3 years' experience of studying French.

Your Homestay

The host families are carefully screened and interviewed by our local partner organisation. Participants are welcome as if they were a member of their host family and shares his everyday life and activities.

The homestay is full board, and the participants are given a single or double room. In case of a double room, they will share it with either another exchange student of a different nationality or a child of the host family itself.

Aside from their usual activities, families organize 1 activity or excursion every week with their host.

In all locations there are on-site coordinators responsible for the well-being of the students. This person is available to both students and families, day and night.
