“I had an absolutely fantastic experience with the exchange program. I hosted a student at my house and then stayed with her in France, and we built an amazing friendship. I also feel that I got to know her family and became a part of it in a way. It is a truly great feeling knowing that I have a second family across the ocean in France.”  -Student, Bishop Blanchet High School

“It makes such a difference for our students to be able to know and befriend French students; this person-to-person contact makes the whole idea of the French language and France itself so much more real and immediate.”  -Teacher, The Northwest School

“Our experience was absolutely wonderful. […] If you are considering participation I can only say that I think it is a wonderful program that will benefit everyone involved for year to come. We will always have a French son and brother. His family will always be a part of our family and vice versa. It can be difficult to open your home and hearts, but if you do so, you will be surprised at the depth of joy you get back. At least that is our experience.”  -Host mother, Federal Way High School
