This program is perfect for any high school student who has an interest in learning another language, whether they’ve been studying French for years or they’re looking to try something new for the first time. Join Travel For Teens this summer to experience authentic French joie de vivre!
Come to the glittering city of Paris, sharpen your French skills, and take in the best of French culture! Paris is the city where Travel For Teens began, and with our history, local knowledge, and strong connections there is no better way to discover the City of Light than with us! We will help you improve your ability to communicate in a second language by making sure you are fully immersed in it. You will spend your mornings taking French lessons and your afternoons and evenings traversing Paris’s legendary quarters and seeing the best the city has to offer! Our experienced bilingual staff will accompany the group at all times. After classes, take your newfound knowledge to the streets, where you will chitchat with shopkeepers, order your own food at restaurants, and participate in fun activities such as scavenger hunts to practice what you’ve learned at the academy.
Outside of class, soak in the best of French culture by exploring Paris and Nice, two very different–but both quintessentially French–cities. You’ll cruise the Seine at sunset, stroll the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles, and explore the artistic hilltop neighborhood of Montmartre. Plus, you’ll be in Paris for Bastille Day, France’s most important national holiday. Watch the parades, attend the Fêtes des Pompiers, and enjoy the spectacular fireworks show from the Eiffel Tower!
