I loved my week there so much!!!

I can’t say enough good things about my homestay with Thomas. I loved my week there so much!!! Thomas is a very kind, generous, and thoughtful host who did everything he could to ensure I would have an amazing week. I loved all of our excursions, especially to the beautiful Alsace villages nearby and to the mountains to walk through the trenches and caves used by WWI soldiers. 

Thomas is such a fun person to spend the day with–we certainly laughed a lot and there was never a boring moment. He tailored his lessons to my personal needs and interests, and he even made a book for me which included pictures, vocabulary, and grammar that we discussed during my week there. The book is one of my most treasured souvenirs ever. 

Unfortunately I was not able to spend time with Thomas’ family as they were getting over Covid, but I did meet his wife and she was delightful also. The gite where I stayed was beautiful, and the owner of the gite was also very kind and welcoming. 

I know that anyone who does this immersion will have the time of their life in one of the most beautiful areas of the world, all while practicing and improving their French. I will be forever grateful to Thomas for taking such good care of me while I was there and for allowing me to experience a truly extraordinary week in the Alsace.
