A total immersion program
This linguistic program was very intense: besides 6 hours of French lessons per day, students were continuouslysurrounded by the French language and culture. They were hosted by French families who received these students during their whole stay. Within their families, students learned everyday life vocabulary, discovered French habits and customs and last but not least, the French cuisine! They also participated in plenty of activities such as visiting cities and villages, vineyard visits, etc… Moreover, they had to select and to join a local association and to take part in its activities like art, sport, volunteering, culture each Wednesday afternoon.
