School Integration

The Secondary School Integration Programme is a fantastic opportunity for students who wish to take their learning further than a one or two-week language course. Students attend a secondary school alongside local students and follow subjects as part of the school curriculum. Accommodation is in host families located close to the high school and participants can avail of extra language classes if required.

School Integration – France

Before starting this programme and for one week, students have the option to attend 10 hours of one-to-one tuition. The lessons are taken in either the host family home or at the teacher’s. They will then rapidly improve their language skills and facilitate their integration into the French way of life and school system.

Individual Homestay

A homestay experience is the ideal cultural experience that allows students to fully immerse themselves in another culture. If the host family does not speak English, the living situation demands total immersion in the language, which greatly improves the speed of language acquisition. There are a number of reasons why staying at a homestay can be preferable to staying in a hotel or hostel. 

Our Homestay in France programmes are open to students from 13 to 18 years old. The aims of these programmes are for the students to improve their knowledge and fluency of the language by sharing and participating in the everyday life of a French family, discover France and one of its regions.
