French in France

The French language's separateness from Latin was recognized in 813, a long before French became a national language. Just as the related Anglo-Norman language exerted itself, by conquest, in the formation of English, so the the tongue of Ile de France also exerted itself by conquest, treaty and acquisition over similar tongues in the area which became France. The influence of the language was extended by exploration, colonization, further conquest, diplomatic, economic and cultural interest.

What is a Private Home stay & Tuition Program in France?

A Private Home stay program's goal is to provide students, regardless their age, nationality or occupation, a one to one private French tuition with his personal French native tutor ( 12, 18 or 24 hours/week)
