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!

Send an e-mail to loulamy@comcast.net for more information.

Activities for the July DISCOVERY group have been scheduled and will be as follows:

Wednesday July 11 - Smithsonian Museums, DC (a no brainer)
Thursday July 19 - Medieval Times, MD (new this year)
Monday July 23 - Kings Dominion (my favorite)

As you see, we have something for everyone. Transportation will be arranged from Manassas and details will be available to our Discovery host families. As they say, the more the merrier, so our hosts and their children are welcome to join us, and I always enjoy the company and the help is most appreciated.

Piedmont Day - May 29, 2012 - What a success!!!
This was my first time, but will certainly not be the last! The perfect weather. I'm glad I had LEC water bottles and Eiffel Tower shaped cookies. A total of 20 families signed up to get more information. I met with the nicest family tonight, and have two more appointments for later this week. Start planning your summer NOW with your French student. Get to know each other through Skype, IM, etc. The sooner, the better. Thank you for making it a great day and for your interest, I can't wait to hear from you.
