This program targets students between 15 and 18 years old who are keen to experience life as a French teenager for a whole school year by living with a host family and fully immersing into French culture. The student will share the daily life of his/her host family, will go to a local school and will have many occasions to learn about the local life in host community.
The program starts with a national arrival orientation and ends with a national return orientation, both in Paris. In between, the students will be invited to attend local orientations and events organized by local volunteers. Additionally, he/she will have the opportunity to meet with other AFSers hosted in the same local chapter.
