Twenty-five French teens from professional French families will be coming to the Atlanta area from July 5-25 and retired French teacher Linda Farmer is looking for host families who will show their student warmth and hospitality.
These French teens from Paris to Provence to Alsace want to experience American life firsthand and be totally immersed in the English language.
Farmer, an East Cobb resident and former French teacher at Lassiter High School, will oversee the program with a French chaperon.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for Atlanta-area families to add an international dimension to their lives," says Farmer.
LEC (Loisirs Culturels à l'étranger), the Paris-based sponsor, provides these students with comprehensive medical insurance and gives host families compensation for room and board.
All students come with ample spending money for expenses outside of the home and each has had three to six years of English depending on age. An excursion bus will take the French teens on sightseeing trips once per week while they are here. No French language skills are needed!
