If you’ve ever dreamed of cycling down a cobblestone street with a fresh baguette in your basket, you’re bound to feel at home in France’s quaint countryside or charming, historic cities. With its passion for food, philosophy, art, and architecture, France is an ideal place to discover a new culture and rewrite your high school experience. By going to a local high school, you’ll be totally immersed in French language and customs, and what you learn during the day will be reinforced at night when you go home to your host family and community. You’ll be much more than a tourist snapping quick photos of the Eiffel Tower; you’ll have the opportunity to eat, drink, and breathe French culture, to learn the language and get to know the people.
