The tutoring is focused on improving conversational French, with an emphasis on the French lifestyle and culture. Writing, reading, and listening activities are included to round out the student's learning. The student will also be taught how to « fit in » with the local culture and about the community and its values. The student is encouraged to write a daily journal and to tape and playback conversations during the lessons.


The new family member is expected to take part in the daily activities of his or her French host family. Integration into the family is the ultimate goal of the homestay experience. However, our French host families are not required to organize activities, visits or excursions. The participant comes with his/her own spending money to cover the cost of activities.
