    Improve your language skills as you soak in the richness and diversity of French culture.

    Placed in a local homestay in Southwestern France, you will be immersed in the language, culture, and typical teen routine at a public or private lycée in towns and suburbs like Villefranche-de-Lauragais, Montgiscard or Baziège. Although studies are rigorous (the school day ends at 5 to 6 p.m.), you will still have plenty of time to hang out at cafés, visit museums, play sports, watch French TV, and share traditional home-cooked meals with your homestay. All our homestays are located in the greater Midi-Pyrenees region, famous for its amazing food, fair climate and cultural scene. Get ready to settle in a peaceful little countryside town like Villefranche-de-Lauragais, Montgiscard or Baziège. Conveniently located within a couple of hours drive of the Atlantic ocean, the Pyrenees mountains and the Mediterranean coast, you will have the opportunity to appreciate many of the amazing natural landscapes and cultural destinations of France.
