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!
I hope your plans will include hosting a French student for 3 weeks. Aged 14 to 19, the French students come to the USA to practice their English and to live the American way for a short time. They want to explore new places, see new things and foremost, make new friends. For 3 weeks, they become a member of your family. They will share chores, hang out with your kids, and follow your rules.
This summer, give your family an opportunity to make memories that will last a lifetime.
