Dates & Prices

[Update - this trip is now Fully Booked]


We understand that to ensure students have a positive experience while studying abroad, securing safe and comfortable accommodation is vital. Our exceptional affiliated language school France Langue consistently provide host family accommodation of the highest standard. They will previously assess your friendly host family to ensure they are able to fully meet each student’s needs.

You can share a double room with a friend or if you are travelling alone we will place you with another student. Alternatively, you can opt for a single room for a weekly surcharge. During your stay, you will be provided with full-board. 

Staying with a host family is a fantastic way to fully immerse yourself in the French culture while improving your language skills with native speakers on a daily basis.

Every student has a curfew of 11 PM from Sunday to Thursday and 1 AM on Friday and Saturday.

School Introduction Video

Students will stay with a welcoming host family who live a short distance from the France Langue language school in Biarritz. Each host family is previously vetted by the school staff.

Students can opt to share a room with a friend or can be placed with another student if they have travelled alone. Staying with a student who you didn’t know before your trip is a great way to widen your circle of friends while getting the chance to practice your language skills with new people.

Students can opt to stay for two or three weeks. If you book a two week trip but want to extend your stay while you’re there, that’s no problem.

Transfer between the airport and your host family’s home is provided on arrival and departure.

While all meals are provided, you’ll need money for socialising and shopping during your time away.

You’ll fly out on the 5th of June 2017. If these dates don’t suit you, we’ve got the same trip planned for the 8th of April.

Having a foundation of conversational French is beneficial to students going on any of our language courses but even less advanced students will see their fluency flourish in a short space of time during this immersive experience.
