Learning a language abroad

We know that learning a language abroad as an adult is a big deal! You are going out of your comfort zone and stepping into a world that you might not fully understand. Our trusted partner schools have it all worked out – you can be met at the airport, taken to your accommodation and learn how to get from where you’re living to where you’re going to be studying.

You could be taking local buses into school, or maybe you’re just a short walk from your school – it all depends on the location, and whether you’d like to stay in a hotel, or if you’re really feeling adventurous, with a host family who will predominantly speak to you in French! That said, don’t worry, they also have years of experience of welcoming international students. They’ll know how you feel, and they’ll absorb your worries and French language frustrations as you go.
