The program gives students an opportunity to get a holistic view of the community. Thus the student is not restricted to an academic setting but becomes part of a richer relationship with the city as a whole. Over the years students have been responding enthusiastically to this alternative form of education. They benefit from a complete immersion in French society through homestay housing and develop from a liguistic, cultural and personal point of view
