Welcome to LEC Washington

LEC (Loisirs Culturels a l'Etranger) is a travel organization headquartered in Paris. Since 1972, LEC has arranged visits for French students to American homes. Every year, nearly 250 students count on families like yours to open their home and their hearts for three weeks in the summer months. These French ambassadors are here to improve their English skills, to learn about the American culture and create friendships that may last a lifetime.

Please subscribe to this blog, and get updated information on new arrivals, activities planned (for Discovery) and see the students disappear as host families make their selection). Here today, gone tomorrow!

The last Discovery group trip to Kings Dominion was a HOT day, but it was great! Everyone enjoyed the rides and especially the water park!

The 3 weeks have gone by too fast! The kids made their way back to France this past Monday. Everyone had a wonderful time and the host families enjoyed their experiences. We are sad to see them go but are looking forward to next year!

The Discovery group had another great day trip last week! Everyone enjoyed themselves at Medieval Times and at the outlets.

Come is 17 years old and was one of the first boy to be placed months ago and something happened that prevented the original host family to participate. Do you know anyone who would like to host Come? He is in the Immersion program, therefore, he doesn't have to participate to group activities. He also asked to be the only French student in the family. Merci a l'avance!
