Nacel has been offering French immersion for Australian students for several decades. Individual Australian students as well as Australian schools join us in France for a few weeks during their summer break to enjoy a French cultural discovery. More than a simple travel to France, our French cultural trips allow you to live like a French teen, immerse yourself in the country and have a better cultural knowledge and intercultural skills. Let's start your student exchange in France this coming summer! 

You fly from Australia (Sydney, Canberra or Melbourne for example) to land in Paris where you are welcomed by our friendly Nacel Welcome staff who accompanies you to your next destination!
Pack warm clothes: you arrive in Paris in December, the weather will be a bit cold!

You go to the local high school with your French host sister or host brother and get to know your new classmates. You attend all regular classes and participate the best you can. You also try to do homeworks so that you can practice your French. 

If you arrive in December, you have the unique opportunity to live a French Christmas with our host family. You meet with their relatives and discover the French Christmas traditions. You also celebrate the New Year with your French host family.
