500 WEP BE Family-StayThe France Family Stay program is the perfect opportunity to learn French through total immersion in the French culture. Participants stay with a host family that will consider them as an active family member. Unless participants choose the "Culture Option," no particular activities are planned. The "Culture Option" is available for students under 18 years old, and consists of a day and a half of cultural excursions each week. The goal of this program is not to follow a French language course, but to learn the language through living the everyday life of a French family. An authentic insight into the French lifestyle!
