Video and Photos


Set in the lively city of Rennes, this program offers a challenging alternative to our most motivated French learners: open exclusively to students with two years of High School French and above, this program requires that participants speak French at all times. So get ready for a full immersion!

After morning language classes, you’ll spend an hour per day practicing your skills out in the community – speaking and reading French in markets, cafes, and parks. Later in the afternoon, enjoy regular group gatherings with French high school students and guided excursions to culturally and historically significant sites with your program leader, a U.S. French teacher.

College credit option is available for this program; see our site for details.

Yes, I recommend this program

It was great

This is an interesting experience, it was really fun. We got to see so much and learn a great amount. It couldn’t have been any better. The beaches are extremely nice and their traditions are really interesting. The town is small which makes it easier to move around, you really can’t get lost here. Over all everything was great the education, housing ,support ,and the food! I will definitely miss that!! The host families do definitely make you feel like you are part of theirs. You get to make new friends and meet all kinds of people. You also get to make a second family who will support you and understand you and if you have any problems, they will try to help you. Everything about this is great if you have the option, take it not many can!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would give more time to certain activities that we enjoyed more.
