Program Reviews:
Summer 2019 Participant
I enjoyed my host mother immensely. She was a French-Moroccan women who loved hosted students and helping them with their French. She would tell the most amazing stories and she helped me improve my French more than I imagined!

Summer 2012 Participant
Learning the language is all about the effort you put forth to speak, not necessarily the quality of your French, so don't ever be afraid to try to speak the language. You will make mistakes, and that's okay. Also, dress for a much cooler climate. I brought mostly summer clothes and didn't wear any of them. A good jacket and boots/shoes for the rain are essential.

Summer 2014 Participant
I loved the tour portion because it showed me many different areas of France I normally wouldn't have visited. Each village had a different personality and a different twist. We weren't just focusing on one aspect, but everything food, architecture, history, etc. I loved the variety. It was also a good way to acclimate to the language before the more rigorous academic program in Paris.
