Creating international friendship between France and USA
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!
Thanks to my favorite reporter at the Bull Run Observer, I have a nice article that appeared in this weeks paper. I have been able to place a couple of students. But 5 guys are left, (and the chaperon), in the discovery group, and they are very anxious to know if they will be able to come. They all have their plane tickets and are waiting for the green light that a family will be able to welcome them for three weeks.
Here are their pictures:
Please, talk to you neighbors and friends, and spread the word. I have never had to refuse a student, and I'm running out of time.
