My experience with Abbey Road Programs in St-Laurent-du-Var - by Jason D.

discover program

While in France I hoped to see the beautiful beaches of the Azure Coast and experience daily life in a French town. After my first couple days in France in addition to wanting to improve my language skills and experience French culture, I also began to have the urge to create a bond with not only the fellow students, but also with my host family.

What has surprised me most about the Abbey Road home-stay program is the lasting impression that the trip has made on me and I seriously consider this program to have been a life-changing experience. Considering that my French has greatly improved, my cultural awareness has exponentially increased I’m confident that this will positively affect my academic performance.

I’ve also established what I hope will be lasting friendships with several of the Abbey Road teens and I remain in close contact with my host family. For me personally, the St. Laurent-du-Var cultural immersion program was a pivotal experience. I arrived home to New York feeling confident, independent and with a newfound wish to explore the world around me.
