Take a group pledge to speak only in French on this language immersion travel program, then dive into authentic French culture and language as you travel to villages and cities all over France with your fellow high school student travelers and group leaders.

Visit the D-day beaches of Normandy, go trekking in the Alps, see Provence's Roman Ruins, swim, and zip-line - all the while practicing your French in real-world settings.

Putney's French language immersion programs combine high culture in Paris and Aix-en-Provence with authentic interactions with locals in the French countryside. Listen as an art historian explains the work of the French Impressionists at the Musee d'Orsay and the Louvre in Paris, then venture into the countryside to hike, surf, cook, and spend a week with a host family. Work on a short internship in a village, play soccer on the beach with local students, and feel your language skills improving each day.


*Discuss (in French!) famous works of art at the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, and the Centre Pompidou.

*Enjoy a crêpe or a pain au chocolat as you relax at a Parisian sidewalk café.

*Put your French to the test by spending a morning shadowing a local Breton baker, shop owner, or farmer.

*Celebrate Bastille Day with your homestay siblings and their friends.

*With the help of professional guides, try your hand at windsurfing, canyoning, or rock climbing.
