Unique ECI Individual Immersion in the French ALPS
No other program offers you this amazing opportunity. Your spoken French and knowledge about French culture is guaranteed to improve.
Our ability to offer a total and authentic immersion experience is what sets ECI apart from other Summer Study Abroad organizations.
You will live with a volunteer French family, handpicked for you by our experienced Host Family Coordinator, in the picturesque Alpine region of Gap. Host families usually have teenagers who are a similar age to you.
Your Host Family Coordinator will be on-hand throughout your experience, as part of the ECI support team. She will visit you in your host family home and also meet up with you during your stay to make sure all is going well.
No classes, no group activities, no English. Simply one week of French culture, French family life and French language.
This is true language immersion.
Individual Immersion in Gap, in the French ALPS
Immersion students love Gap. It’s a beautiful and safe Alpine town, and there is a lot to do, particularly if you love the outdoors. There are opportunities to hike, swim in fantastic lakes, and to go horseback riding.
Gap is a popular tourist destination but mainly for French people on vacation – so, there’s plenty of opportunity to speak nothing but French during your whole stay. Gap is an excellent location for an Individual Immersion experience.
Spend your summer in the mountains of France and improve your French.
