GAP YEAR IN FRANCE
Learn About France
As a World Explorer in France, you will get the chance to learn the real French way of life while living with a host family. Your number one priority is to spend quality time with your hosts, and to practice English with them for 15 hours per week. However, you are welcome to explore as you wish in your free time. Your program is truly what you make of it.
CHI also offers exciting volunteer and work opportunities in addition to our home tutor option in France. These programs are more structured and demand more hours of your time. Find out more about our International Internships, Volunteer Abroad opportunities and Au Pair Abroad opportunities available through our trusted partners in France.
- Working at a hotel or restaurant on a Hospitality Internship
- Working as an Au Pair Abroad
- Volunteering on a farm or a ranch
- Eco-volunteering with wild birds and animals

We understand that keeping the World Explorers cost down is as important as the life-changing experience you will enjoy. Hence, we prepared a cost calculator which shows the cost of the program (excluding airfare) compared to the cost of a standard vacation. The prices are calculated according to the destination chosen, the arrival and departure dates, and the length of your stay.
The length of your stay is an especially important factor: the longer you stay abroad, the cheaper the cost per day becomes.
CHI is a non-profit organization, but we still have fixed costs that are necessary for running the program. Our overseas partners are actually for-profit, and we must take that into consideration as well. Our partners do the work to find and screen excellent host families that match your interests and needs!
