Study Abroad in

France

France is a global hub of art, literature, philosophy, architecture, food, sports, and film. As one of the oldest nations in Europe, France presents visitors with a rich history and fascinating culture whether they are exploring its medieval cities, alpine villages, or Mediterranean beaches.

Culture and Language Program

Our Culture and Language Program in France will allow you to live with a French host family, explore French culture, and brush up on your French language skills. On this exchange which can last from 2-8 weeks, participants live with a host family in either a French city of over 50,000 inhabitants, a sunny Provence region in the South of France or along the French Coastline. Participants can also take part in our language camp, where they will take hour long French classes in the morning with a group of international students in Paris then go on cultural excursions in the area. The language camp option includes outings such as a day at Disneyland Paris theme park, a day at Versailles Castle and its gorgeous gardens, a lift ride up to the top of the Eiffel Tower, and more!

Location

Participants can choose to stay in an urban environment, in the beautiful South of France, or along the Mediterranean or Atlantic coast. Participants in the language option will also get to explore Paris and all of its cultural treasures such as the Musée du Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, Notre-Dame, the Chatéau de Versailles, the Eiffel Tower, and more!
