Why learn French?
French is often considered a difficult language to learn.
By living 6 months in immersion with a French family, going to school, visiting different parts of the country, taking part in different activities, you will reach a level of French that will allow you to hold a conversation and talk fluidly.
Even if you have no knowledge of French, often considered the language of diplomacy, you can improve your pronunciation -.the most difficult for Anglo-Saxons is the “r” sound.
Why choose France?
France has incredible cultural wealth.
Everything is so different, from its history to its geography. The “old” rubs shoulders with the “modern” to create open-air museums within every city. The architecture of houses and buildings are so specific from one region to another. To the north, the houses are brick with slate roofs. To the south, the roofs are tiled. There are always things to do, throughout the year, whether you live in the city or in the countryside.
Live life the French way:
Ah, the French art of living! The 'gastronomic meal of the French' was inscribed by UNESCO on its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Your exchange family will show you how to live like the French and get to know the real France from within! Between exploring the delights of French cuisine, experiencing the French school system, and making the most of the holidays which punctuate the school year, there is nothing quite like a French exchange!
