High School Abroad > High School Exchange program in France

We talked to our daugther yesterday and she was so happy! She loves it in Rodez-the town, the school, the school staff and the Nacel staff.  She also said she has girls to sit with at lunch and that everyone has been so nice to her. She also said that she is speaking French more and her understanding gets better every day. The experience she is having now is what she expected from the program so I think this is a good match for her. 

Thank you again for all you and the team have done to help with this transition

We are overwhelmed with the hospitality and kindness everyone including those in Nacel and, of course, the entire family has shown Hannah over these last months.  It is our feeling that Hannah really does love her host family and all the opportunities they have created for her and we believe that Hannah is gaining tangible and immediate benefits from this experience not only by improving her French but by learning about herself including her strengths and weaknesses.

I will always be grateful for her kindness. The camp director was also very attentive to me and the other international students in the French courses. The courses were in groups. The French teacher was very kind, attentive and patient. Days at the camp go by very quickly! Next week is my second week at camp and I don't want to leave!

Studying in France is the best! The Nacel team is very close to you and you are always listening. I had a lot of support from my local coordinator, Amelie! The advice I could give to students interested in doing a school exchange in France is to make the most of their time! It doesn't matter if you don't speak French very well, the important thing is that you try and don't watch videos or listen to the radio of your country of origin.

Studying in France was the best thing that ever happened to me! The food, the people, the architecture is great. Thank you very much Nacel for accepting me into your school exchange program. The boarding school is spectacular for those who want to concentrate well on their studies. At first, if you don't have very good French (like mine when I arrived) you'll feel that it's difficult to keep up with school, but it's normal because you've just arrived. The teachers are very attentive and listen to students who are interested in applying themselves to their studies. I recommend this program 100%.

At school, everybody was nice to me. They are very good and professional. They also speak English so I felt comfortable and not so lost abroad. Arabic is difficult to learn in your own country. In Tetouan to do my shopping, I used a lot of the Arabic I learned at school. I recommend 100 % of learning Arabic in an Arab country because you will learn it very fast like me.

The Batons were wonderful to stay with and I especially liked accompanying them to their local band practices every week. I would strongly recommend this program to others!

Most students dream of studying abroad, fortunately I had the opportunity of attending Saint Paul American School, which is an English based school located in Shanghai, China. I am thankful to both Nacel and my parents for providing me the opportunity to study far from home. Due to what I just mentioned, I got to experience what it was to live foreign country, with a different culture, along with students from all around the world. It was definitely a thrilling experience, from moving to a boarding school, meanwhile becoming an independent adult, to learning how to eat with chopsticks. I most enjoyed interacting with different nationalities, sharing experiences, and growing by learning from each other which is something that I personally will never forget. If someone asked me what my favorite memory from China is, I would tell them about the dorm life. Imagine living with your friends and being able to walk into each other’s room to hangout or blow off some steam from school. Another thing I would mention is being able to travel around the country experiencing the Chinese culture with my friends. I would suggest to take the initiative to study abroad to anyone who is mature enough and ready to live an unforgettable experience.

I am in France studying French.  I would like to do university in France in the future, maybe at the Sorbonne. I would like to have 2 majors: French and History. The food has much less sugar than in the US, and it tastes more natural. I visited the Château d’Amboise, the Clos Lucé et the Chateau Gaillard. I’m fond of Castles. In Paris I hope to visit Place de la Concorde, Château de Vincennes, Château de Fontainebleau and Château de Versailles. It is my passion. I love France and I hope to live here one day. I really want to learn how to speak French properly, this is why I’m here!

As always the team of Nacel very respectful and Professional. I highly recommend this basketball camp so that your children can meet other kids their age and talk to them in French. The first year if we enrolled him in the classes, this year not because he wanted to spend much more time playing basketball.

I want to study medicine at a French university in the future and to be able to adapt and catch up with French culture, my parents and I are interested in Nacel's boarding schools in France. They recommended the Espalion boarding school because the faculty was highly qualified and interested in helping students have an excellent year. For this reason, we chose Espalion. Coming from a big city, I really liked the idea of studying in a much calmer, safer place with nature around. My year in Espalion has been very productive and I leave happy because I have achieved my goal: to study in France and get good grades. Have a nice day!

Everything went very smoothly for Alex's return trip home.  She is still very tired but everything went well!  She had a FANTASTIC time with her lovely lovely host family- the Bousquets were especially nice to Alex and Helen was very kind and patient! .  We cannot thank the Bousquets enough for providing such nice care of Alex - she really experienced what it is like to live in France.  She especially loved playing the piano and going with their daughter to her piano lessons.  I do think her French improved - especially her pronunciation and common phrases.  She is excited to return to her French classes in School this Fall to continue her lessons.

As we are moving this year to Australia, we are so happy that Alex could have this experience during her last Summer as a teenager in the US.  I would highly recommend this program!

My French host family was absolutely amazing. They were so much like my family, and they immediately helped me to feel at home. They made sure to plan enough so that I could see Angoulême but not feel rushed to do so. We did things like go to a “Fête de la musique,” Puy Du Fou, La Rochelle, and more. Though they weren’t required to do all of this, it made my stay there feel more memorable. I feel like a formed a valuable connection with them, and I would love for them to visit my family in the US, or for me to be able to see them again in France. 

In terms of my French, I definitely feel like I improved. There are things that are taught to us in school that don’t really apply to real life in France, like how negatives work and how to say “we.” Being in France for a month, i was able to learn a bunch of saying, colloquialisms, and new vocabulary that will help me in the coming years. I’d say that being totally immersed in a culture for 1 month really helps with learning language, given you have to speak said language all the time. 

 I would definitely recommend this program to students who want to better their language skills, experience a new culture, and form new relationships. It was a great program and definitely gave me more knowledge than I had. However, the only problem with the program was with the Paris Discovery tour. Mainly, there was not near enough time to do everything, and we found that some days, things were closed due to heavy traffic (like the 3rd floor of the Eiffel Tower). Otherwise, it was a great and fulfilling program. 

Finally, on the personal side, I have a connection with my Host family in Touvre, but I also did a lot of self-discovery there and realized that I also have a connection with France, too. I have grown a love for their culture, food, people, places, and language. I feel like there’s a piece of me left in France that’s hard to ignore, and I’m highly considering going back one day, possibly to study in college. The Nacel program helped me with that discovery, and I am always thankful for that.

Everything went very smoothly for Alex's return trip home.  She is still very tired but everything went well!  She had a FANTASTIC time with her lovely lovely host family- the Bousquets were especially nice to Alex and Helen was very kind and patient! .  We cannot thank the Bousquets enough for providing such nice care of Alex - she really experienced what it is like to live in France.  She especially loved playing the piano and going with their daughter to her piano lessons.  I do think her French improved - especially her pronunciation and common phrases.  She is excited to return to her French classes in School this Fall to continue her lessons.

As we are moving this year to Australia, we are so happy that Alex could have this experience during her last Summer as a teenager in the US.  I would highly recommend this program!

My French host family was absolutely amazing. They were so much like my family, and they immediately helped me to feel at home. They made sure to plan enough so that I could see Angoulême but not feel rushed to do so. We did things like go to a “Fête de la musique,” Puy Du Fou, La Rochelle, and more. Though they weren’t required to do all of this, it made my stay there feel more memorable. I feel like a formed a valuable connection with them, and I would love for them to visit my family in the US, or for me to be able to see them again in France. 

In terms of my French, I definitely feel like I improved. There are things that are taught to us in school that don’t really apply to real life in France, like how negatives work and how to say “we.” Being in France for a month, i was able to learn a bunch of saying, colloquialisms, and new vocabulary that will help me in the coming years.

I would like to thank you for your arrangements, we are all very happy with your services and especially with the host family. Veronika enjoys her stay in Cologne very much, she likes her host brothers and parents.  They travelled together to Holland, she met the relatives of the family, she was totally involved in the live of the family. It helped her to get to know the culture of Germany and to improve her language skills.  She also likes her school and schoolmates. She enjoys her basketball trainings. She could make new friends, too. During her stay she had new experiences, she become more mature and gained a new vision of life. I am totally happy she made this program and would do it again. I am already thinking about applying with my son, too.

Zoe truly had a nice experience at Montpellier, her host family took good care of her. They are educated, attentive and kind. The only two things: Zoe was not able to switch to a higher level class during the first week because the higher level was full, and the host family is a little far from the school ( which we understand both). But overall, she really enjoyed the classes there and had a wonderful time at School and with the host family. Thank you very much for your effort and help to make this happen and everything runs smoothly. I will definitely recommend your services to my friends and family.

I did a home stay with Nacel in July 1985. When I got to Lyon, the chaperone saw the name of my family and said I wouldn’t want to leave at the end of the month. Indeed. I studied abroad in Grenoble and came “home” every weekend; two of their sons visited my family in the US. I’m now a French professor in Chicago, and am sitting at the dining table of the house where I stayed all those years ago (the trees are taller!). About to leave for Paris where I’ll visit their youngest son and pick his kids up at school tomorrow. Merci to Nacel! And here’s to exchanges.

The overall experience of attending school abroad and living with a (wonderful) host family has been very positive. For Sean to experience the vibrant & rich French culture first-hand has been invaluable to getting to know his own French lineage, as well as just having a lot of fun. Living and studying amongst a very culturally-diverse population, in a very dynamic part of the world, has opened Sean's eyes to a very interesting life that extends far beyond the confines of our small Connecticut town. And, most importantly for Sean, the friendships he has developed with his host family and with fellow NDIHS students & teachers alike will be treasured for a lifetime. My husband & I are forever grateful for the experiences & opportunities Sean was afforded through your program

The school year went by fast. The life of my host family inspired me a lot. They were super-organized and each one had many dreams to fulfill. And so I learned with them to get up early, take care a little more about my physical and mental health. I was able to go to yoga with them and I liked it a lot! As soon as I get home in Estonia, I will sign up for Yoga and driving lessons. This year in the United States is undoubtedly helping me a lot to mature and grow as a person. Thank you very much Nacel for choosing the Pearson Family for me. They are really amazing. The sadness of being away from my family passed quickly as I began to focus on my goals at school in the United States. At school I met new people and we went out together a few times during the weekends.

I hope that future students who participate in this program will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed it. It is an experience that changes your life for the better forever.

Hi! I am Kimberly, from the USA. I went to Germany because I wanted to challenge myself and improve my German. Throughout the school year, I learned more than I would have ever imagined in my time studying in Germany. My classmates help me a lot to better understand some subjects. My host family and friends know they can visit me anytime in the USA! I will be happy to welcome them like they were with me.

Teachers and classmates are great people. I have been very surprised by the support I have received. I feel at home, even though my home and my whole family are many miles away. Sport is something important in my life and being here in Canada playing a sport that I love is the truth like a dream! The coach is very professional and knows how to lead the team well. It's a very good atmosphere and that's great!
