Baguettes. Paris. The Eiffel Tower. Chateaus. Berets. Sure, France encompasses all these things. But it also delivers much, much more. As the crown jewel of Europe, France consistently proves to be one of our most popular study abroad destinations, and for good reason. With beautiful countryside, an eclectic arts and music culture, and coastal surf towns, there’s more to France than meets the eye. Go see for yourself.
There is so much more to France than just the magnificent city of Paris. Many host families live in small towns or villages, and each region of France looks and feels different. You will have a chance to become immersed in the world-famous culture, from food and architecture to philosophy and painting. The beautiful countryside stretches from the Atlantic to the Alps and from the English Channel to the Mediterranean Sea. The French are extremely proud of their language, culture, heritage and nation. They are also interested in learning about life in other countries, so you can expect to be asked about the history, customs and government of your country.
