Loisirs Culturels A L'Etranger
1. I don't have any children at home.
As long as you can introduce the French teen to some American teens there isn't a problem.
2. We don't speak French.
Terrific! LEC students all speak English and they want to improve their speaking skills while they are here.
3. We go on vacations in the summer.
Our LEC student can travel with their host family on vacation. Just inform us of your LEC Coordinator
4. What if our student needs medical attention?
LEC provides complete medical and dental insurance for the students.
You can take the LEC student to your
family doctor or area hospital for treatment.
5. We don't have an extra bedroom.
The LEC student can share a bedroom with a family member of the same sex and approximate same age.
6. We seldom go anywhere.
The host family does not have to act as "tour guide" while the LEC student visits.
The students are here to learn
about our everyday life.
7. If there are problems, what should we do?
LEC provides a very extensive
support system for the host family. Your local LEC Coordinator
would be your main contact. Other contacts would
be your General Coordinator, National Coordinator and the student's adult chaperone. If
there is a problem we all work together to resolve it to
8. What are our responsibilities as host parents?
Host families provide room and board along with friendship and understanding.
