Where do students live?
Staying with a French host familyBy staying with a French host family, you will gain a close insight to the everyday life in the country. Living with natives is truly the best way of getting to know France from the inside out. You will get to experience French culture beyond its typical stereotypes and get to know a kind and caring family somewhere in the country. Our families come in all shapes and sizes and are looking forward to welcoming you into their home.
Meals at homeThe food culture in France is known worldwide. A stereotype that in fact is true is that the French eat a lot of baguettes, croissants, and cheese. Their dinners often end with a cheese plate, and you will get to try all kind of delicious “fromage” during your exchange year here. The dinners can also last for hours, where they enjoy different meals and talk with each other. Make sure to join your host parents when they make typical French cuisine. You will definitely get to use those skills when you get back home!
Also, remember that your host family will be curious about you and the food culture from your country. Introduce them to some typical food and pastries every now and then. They will appreciate it as much as you will appreciate being served delicious crêpes, pain au chocolates, and creamy quiches during your time in the country.
