Gap year in France
Find program for your age
An independent gap year in France
You’ll fall in love with France, especially if you like great food, art, and architecture. Spending a gap year in France can help you understand the nuances of French much easier than if were to attempt to learn the language at home. Ordering food in French from a menu, bargaining in French at an outdoor market, and enjoying French theatrical performances will become part of your life during your gap year in France. Our program will also allow you to gain a French perspective on the world, make lasting friendships, and develop your independence as a world traveler.
One of the most pleasant things about a gap year in France is that you have the time to evolve throughout the year. You'll start out uneasy, perhaps frightened to speak French and intimidated by all the incomprehensible things around you. As you settle in and make friends, your French will improve and you'll develop some habits: a favorite cafe, your neighborhood bakery, your morning walk to school. By the second half of your gap year in France, you'll be more confident, taking weekend trips with friends to explore different regions, showing off your French when you have visits from home. After finishing your gap year program in France, you'll never want to leave!
