Summer Immersion Trip to France

Students live and travel together for a month to improve their language skills, deepen their cultural understandings, make personal connections, and grow as independent travelers and members of the global community.

Students will be accompanied by local French students. The group will stay in various hotels, attend a summer youth camp, and live in a rural country house in the Dordogne region and then in the Bretagne region. They will visit the cities of Bordeaux, Nantes, and Paris.
