The IntoFrance Homestay Programme - Total Immersion!

The original programme, and still the best one for motivated students! Continuous total immersion in the host French family – a teenager in the family. Solid and ­lasting friendships in France will be created as a result of living with the French family and this will encourage the participant to ­continue studying the French language and culture.

The IntoFrance Homestay Programme is an individual and personalised ­language holiday in a French family for young people from 13 to 18 who want to improve their spoken French quickly and efficiently.

There are neither language classes nor organised activities so as to avoid foreign students gathering together which will hinder their progress in French.

Progress in French is assured

Progress in the French language is assured by the total immersion within the host family. Return home with better spoken French and hopes for better results in your oral examination (in the Leaving Certificate exams for Irish participants for example).

For independent and motivated young people

The Homestay Programme will suit students who do not wish to attend classes but who wish to enjoy a language holiday in that beautiful country that is France and to improve their French in a very natural way.

The Homestay Programme is available from 01/06/2019 to 31/08/2019.
You may arrive or depart on any day of the week.

All French schools are on holidays from 01/07/2019 to 31/08/2019. However depending on the age of the participant it is possible to arrange Homestays in June. Best age (for June) 15, 16, 17. Homestays in June may imply attending the French school.
