To be reassured that these tours are successful, just read the following feedback from some of the January 2017 and 2016 students & parents :

"My fifth visit to Paris was the least stressful and most informative. It was a treat to be shown around Paris by Annie nd David who are a wealth of knowledge...The courses at the Cavilam were taught by passionate teachers who provided interesting and relevant content. Staying with a host family was the best way to experience the French way of life and improve my French" (Jennifer 2017)

"My French has improved a lot and my understanding of French culture even more. I really enjoyed the chance to learn at the Cavilam and to stay with my host family. These are both things I will not forget about in the near future. I also liked how all the kids ended up getting along and becoming good friends. The monuments we visited were just how you expect them to be and I will recommend this trip to anybody who asks about it." (Jack 2017)

"I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and have learnt a lot from it. I'm glad we were able to fit so much sightseeing into one week...It was also great that we were staying in the Marais district, because even in the middle of winter it was still a lovely area and everything was so nearby...I also loved Vichy and the Cavilam. My French has greatly improved...My host family was wonderful - they were very kind and welcoming...I really liked all the people in our group. I'm really glad that I came on this trip and I will certainly recommend it to other people." (Luke 2017)

"The trip was a wonderful experience for our son Riley. As an only child he had to push his boundaries in sharing with others and being in a group situation. He came back a much older and wiser person, and with more confidence in his own abilities. The experience these young people receive goes beyond the simple learning of a language. He also had a great time with his lovely host family." (Mother of Riley 2017)

"The trip was amazing. It really helped me to improve my French and was definitely worth it. The Cavilam was really useful as it catered to my level of French which was immensely helpful. The touring with the group and all of the activities were awesome and I met some new people in the French community. My homestay family was lovely and catered for all my needs. Overall the trip was completely worth it and I loved every second of it" (Marcus 2016

"It was the most unforgettable experience and worth every second. Thank you for this wonderful experience." (Lillie 2016)

"The trip wwas amazing in so many ways!" (Gracie 2016)

"The trip was a really rewarding and unforgettable experience...I love it so much that I went twice!" (Brigitte 2015, 2016)

"The trip was amazing. I got to meet a lot of new peeple, see and lot and improve my French. I definitely recomment it". (Mardi 2016)
