Start your day with a delicious café au lait, discover your French hometown with your new friends, and develop a nice French accent through animated conversations with hosts! On this program, you will also have the chance to meet French teens.

Why travel with aNDEO?

We love homestays! We have specialized in homestay travel since 1981. We truly believe that the best way to experience another culture and improve your language skills is by sharing everyday life with a welcoming host family.

We have first-hand experience traveling and living with host families. Our staff members have all lived with host families abroad and understand the joys and challenges of homestays. We are ready to support you in your cross-cultural adventure.

ANDEO staff members have personally visited each of our partner schools and organizations, and we work directly with these partners to coordinate each program.

You will never be a number. Our programs are small and our service is personal. Even though we have worked with thousands of students, we are proud of the personalized service and strong support we give our participants (and their parents, too!).

Established in 1981, our mission is to promote cross-cultural understanding and friendship through homestays and educational programs.
