Bienvenue chez nous!


The French Immersion School in Trois-Pistoles offers a unique experience in placing you with a specially chosen Quebecois family for room and board for the entire session.  


During your time in Trois-Pistoles, you will stay with a local host family in order to enhance the immersion experience. A 'host family' may mean a couple with or without children, or a single person with or without children.

The host family will provide a comfortable bed, a quiet place to study, and access to the shared spaces in the home. Depending on the number of bedrooms, a host family may provide lodging to more than one program participant. If you have a room-mate preference, please let us know when registering.


The host family will provide well-balanced meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner - which will allow you to experience Quebecois cuisine while improving your language skills through conversation. Some of our hosts prepare meals specifically for students with food allergies. If you have any dietary restrictions, please inform us when registering so that we can make the necessary arrangements.

Some of our host families are able to offer only lodging, so some participants may stay with one family and dine with another family. 


In order to align with the French-only policy at the School, the hosts will encourage the exclusive use of French in the home.
