The purpose of our association
We promote the linguistic immersion of foreign students by welcoming families. We believe that this method is one of the most effective for acquiring the basic mechanisms and subtleties of a language. The daily contact between people from different cultures makes it possible to discover a new way of life to open up to other ideas.
Our activity is therefore the connection of French families with foreign students wishing to learn the French language and culture in an immersive way.
Contacts are mainly handled by Christine thanks to her long experience in placing foreign students in French host families.

- Preparation of the reception of the student in a French family before the arrival in France
- Search for a family adapted to the expectations of the student
- Personalized welcome upon arrival in Toulouse
- Follow-up throughout the stay
Our objective is to respond as quickly as possible to requests for accommodation from foreign students, by working within very short deadlines. We also act with great reactivity in the event of a disagreement between the student and his host family. Another solution is then offered at no additional cost (excluding travel).
Our organization ensures a regular follow-up of each mission. We intervene at any time in the event of a problem, at the request of the student, the host family or the prescriber. However, a preliminary questionnaire makes it possible to do everything possible to entrust the student to a family that best suits him.
Selection of host families
The families who collaborate with us all sign a contract. They are familiar with our concept and undertake to respect the quality of service and welcome expected. We regularly expand our network thanks to recommendations from families to those around them.
