Double the BFF time with a two-way exchange
Your incroyable reciprocal French experience
Want an immersive two-way exchange experience and double the BFF time?
Our reciprocal program means you get to experience life as a French teenager (like dipping your tartine de beurre and learning what “c’est dar ou posey” means).
HOW IT WORKS
Every student who signs up for an exchange gets a French correspondent: a student of a similar age, who’ll attend the same school and hopefully be your BFF while you’re in France, while they’re in Australia and, fingers crossed, forever.
It’s our goal to find the perfect French correspondent for you. That’s why when you apply, we try to get to know a little bit about who you are, what you like and the kind of experience you’re hoping to have.
You’ll travel to France and stay with your host family for six or 12 weeks. It’s reciprocal because your French correspondent will come and stay with you and your family in Australia for six or 12 weeks.
If you choose our 12 week program, you may even have two correspondents who come and stay with you (don’t worry, not at the same time). They may come one after the other, or one could come before you go to France, the other when you’re home.
Depending on the dates of your program and your year level at school, you can host first and travel later, or travel to France first and host later.
This program allows you and your correspondent to truly share your lives with one another, helping to create lifelong meilleurs amis.
This program is for you if:
- You’d like to go to France and host a French correspondent
- You’re ready to meet your new French best friend
- You’re able to host and welcome a French student in your family for six to 12 weeks
- Your family is able to offer your French correspondent their own bedroom
- Your school is able to host a French student (we’ll give you all the information they need)
