Amazing experience for my 15 year old daughter

My daughter had an extremely successful immersion experience last summer for 2.5 weeks in a small village outside of Gap. Growing up in California, but with a French father, she speaks and understands French, but not fluently. The program overall and her host family, in particular, really provided the opportunity for her to improve her French and get a deeper sense for the culture. They welcomed her warmly into their home and organized outings to local towns and activities. Initially, the adjustment was a bit overwhelming for my daughter (jet lag, new people, constant French, etc), but the local team, Roseline and Geraldine, were amazing in their response and care they provided for her. As a parent, I felt very comfortable that my daughter was in good and caring hands and they connected with her to relieve her stress. Once she got a good night's sleep, she was fully engaged with the family and enjoyed every minute. In fact, when she returned home, after "hello", her comment was "I wish I was back in France".
