ESL schools guarantee the same excellent standards for accommodation as they do for teaching. We take great pleasure in helping you find the most suitable accommodation for you.


Host family


In total immersion in the French language, you will discover the habits and customs of Brittany in a welcoming host family, carefully selected by CIEL. Every occasion is an opportunity to practice French: during a meal, during the days out with your hosts, in the evening in the living room… thus you will improve your communication skills on a daily basis without even noticing it! You will be accommodated in a single room, half board from Monday to Friday and full board on the weekend.
