Residential French Immersion Programs in France in Your Teacher’s Home
Private and Customized Immersion Homestays with our Hand-picked French Immersion Teachers
Private and Customized Immersion Homestays with our Hand-picked French Immersion Teachers
Experience a spectacular learning vacation. Travel alone or with your family. Your personal immersion teacher will meet your level of French, provide tailored French lessons, fun excursions, delicious meals, comfortable accommodations and gently entice you to speak French as you share his/her daily life.
All the French teachers we recommend are experienced, patient and dependable. Although they will encourage you to speak French at all times, they can resort to speaking English if need be (to prepare your trip, explain things clearly to beginners or with your accompanying family members).
Customer satisfaction is our number one priority. As a policy, we ask the students to provide us with a review after each immersion homestay (read them on each teacher’s page). You can trust our teachers are the best: you can trust 800 reviews with pictures.
Many schools will randomly pair students with teachers according to who is available. At French Today, we value the fact that each person is unique, and feel it’s your right to choose and contact directly the French immersion teacher that’s best for you.
