Host family
Being immersed in the culture of a country is without doubt one of the best ways to learn the language. Living with a host family means getting to know the way of life of the people of Lyon from the inside – their food and customs – while having an enriching experience. It's also your chance to practise French daily in an authentic context. Your host will be carefully selected by our partner school. Living around 10-40 minutes away from the school, you will stay in a single or double room with breakfast only or half board provided.

With shops, cinemas, exhibitions, concerts, sports centres, bars, restaurants, nightclubs and much more, you will find a huge amount to enjoy in Lyon. There is something to suit all tastes and budgets. In the 2000 years since the Romans made Lugdunum (their name for Lyon) one of the ancient world’s most important cities, it has developed into a top international destination - especially for foodies. Head a short distance out of the city and enjoy the beautiful countryside that surrounds and provides the ingredients for the legendary local cuisine. Enjoy the walks, take a bike ride or taste the latest wines from the Beaujolais region. Its closeness to the Mediterranean, Paris and Geneva makes Lyon an ideal destination for studying French, and you will no doubt be seduced by its beauty, rich culture and festive atmosphere.
