From a room in the family home to full immersion in French life

Staying with a host family is a unique intercultural experience. As customs and habits vary from country to country, and even family to family, host family accommodation depends on mutual respect and a willingness to adapt. Depending on the expectations and objectives you have for your French program, you can choose from several types of family accommodation.

If you would like to share unique moments of daily life with your family, using your French in real situations, then a half-board option is for you. This includes breakfast every day and a set number of evening meals to suit your needs.


The room only or room with breakfast only option would suit those who are looking for more independence, but still enjoy the warm environment of a family home.

You are fully autonomous, but our families are happy to give advice and ensure you benefit from their experience of the region, making your stay that much more authentic and unique!
Depending on the options, you can choose a single room or share your room with a friend or a member of your family.

Homestay in Paris

Our families

All our host families are carefully selected by our team. They are all welcoming and hospitable, regardless of age or circumstances. We are committed to satisfying everyone’s requirements.

Our families all live  5 to 35 minutes from the school. Each family hosts one or more students with a different mother tongue.

RULES FOR A FAMILY STAY

Our host families receive each student within the context of our quality policy. We also expect that our students adapt to and respect their host families. We highly recommend that you read the useful information in our “Rules for Community Living”.

Download the Rules for Community Living.


For minors* parental authorisation is required to stay in a host family. Parents and children must read and sign the school’s parental consent form. This parental authorisation must be returned to the school before the student’s stay begins. The release hours on the consent form are non-negotiable, and must be respected. Misbehaviour may result in the student losing their room with the host family, without possibility of a refund and into the care of the parents.

*minimum age for a home stay: 17
