Histoires en France
10-Day Teacher-Led Language and Cultural Immersion in France
10-Day Program | Student group French language immersion begins with a taste of Paris! After that, our unforgettable Family Stay Experience® allows students to become temporary locals and appreciate the everyday French lifestyle. Immerse yourself in French culture by experiencing everyday life with your host family. We believe that living with a family, speaking their language and participating in their customs is the best and most authentic way to experience another culture. It’s also what makes our programs different from any other travel experience. After 50 years of arranging family stays, we’re no longer surprised when our participants say that living with a family was the best part of their experience! Ask about our guided options.
All Xperitas language immersion travel programs for high school and middle school students include our Rest Assured Advantages.

Xperitas, we work with teachers to provide their students with outstanding language and cultural immersion experiences. As a non-profit we are mission driven. We believe that when students have an authentic experience outside of the classroom, using their language skills in a different culture, they make a deeper cultural connection. Our programs are designed to inspire students to make personal connections with communities worldwide and gain greater cultural competency. The benefits of student language immersion travel abroad reported to us by teachers, parents and the students themselves are as follows:
A better understanding of language and the nuance of dialect
An understanding of language within the context of the culture
A greater awareness of different perspectives
A sense of increased independence, self-sufficiency, and cultural competence
