Program Reviews:
Summer 2012 Participant
I felt that this program truly submerged the students within the French culture. I loved the fact that we lived in home-stays, were forced to use the language and figure out the city on our own, and truly see the city as if we were an inhabitant of Paris.

Summer 2019 Participant
The three most rewarding parts of the program were the weekly written journals, class at Ecole Etoile, and the stay with my host family. The journals helped to improve my written French and were a good way to gauge my progress; I noticed the further into the program I got, the easier it was to write them! My teacher at school was Parisian, so having her help us improve our French was more helpful than I could have ever dreamed. The host family stay helped with conversational French and my host mom helped me find areas of my pronunciation I could improve on!

Summer 2015 Participant
The time spent in the classroom was rewarding. Seeing the museums and historic sites were also great. The time spent outside of class interacting with the French people on the street in restaurants, parks, museums, etc. was the most rewarding.
