Additionally, your host family will show you around the city, introduce you to local cuisine, take you to festivals and events, share family customs and celebrations, and help you perfect your French!
Your BCA Strasbourg Resident Director will help you maximize your time by quickly connecting you the local culture.

Together with your RD, you will delve into the history of Strasbourg that led to the city’s historic center, the Grand Île (Grand Island), being classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will travel to Paris to walk along the River Seine and learn about the art, food, architecture and culture of the City of Light.
