Experience “la vie en rose” by living with a host family and attending a local school for a whole school year in France!

This program targets students who are keen to experience life as a French teenager for a whole school year by living with a host family and fully immersing into French culture. The student will share the daily life of his/her host family, go to a local school and will have many occasions to learn about the local life in host community. The program starts with a national arrival orientation and ends with a national return orientation, both in Paris. In between, the students will be invited to attend local orientations and events organized by local volunteers. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to meet with other AFSers hosted in the same local chapter.
