Practice your french this summer

My name is Jessica and I work with a non-profit NACEL Open Door that does students exchanges in South Florida. I am contacting you because I have an opportunity for the members of your group. We are looking for families to host French students, ages 14 to 18, who will visit South Florida from June 30-July 25. Students spend weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in an educational program. Evenings and weekends are spent with your family living life as usual. Families are given a small stipend to cover food and students bring their own spending money for any other expenses.
The reason I am specifically contacting your group is because I know that you have an interest in the French language and culture. Bringing a student from France into your home is a great way to expose your family to the French culture and language without having to leave your home. Your family can forge a relationship with students from France and gain an understanding of the student's culture.
To learn more about becoming a host family, call Jessica at[masked] or email me at [address removed].
The students look forward to being a part of an American family and experiencing our culture.
If you cannot host, please pass this on to someone you think may be able to..
Thank you very much,
NACEL Open Door Local Coordinator
