Immersion Program for Families
In addition to our immersion program for teens in Vichy, France, we also offer other educational travel opportunities to individuals and families.
Introduction to Worldschooling is an educational trip designed for families with children by our immersion partner, CAVILAM Vichy. Families are placed with host families, so you spend your week living in a real French home. Children and adults are given French courses in the mornings and then different activities and excursions are organized in the afternoons, with evenings free to explore.
