French students to meet Linglestown families

LEC, a French student organization with American coordinators, invites you to welcome a French teen into your home this summer. Two groups of students will spend three weeks in south central Pennsylvania this summer, one July 7-27 and the other August 4-24. You can represent the United States by showing these young Europeans how we live our daily lives.

The students are coming to practice their English and to immerse themselves in American culture and family life. Ideal host families will have children at home, but all are welcome to apply. Homes without children may provide opportunities for students to interact with others of their age, such as neighbors, church youth groups, and sports teams or clubs.

Each student speaks English, is fully insured, and has his or her own spending money. They enjoy a variety of sports and activities and are anxious to learn about their American counterparts.

Host families will have the opportunity to show the students around our region, too, rich with history, recreation, and entertainment. In turn, the families learn much about the students’ home regions in France.

Families are reimbursed $80 per week to assist with expenses.

LEC has planned visits to the United States since 1972. Over the past three years, LEC students have visited families in Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lebanon, Perry, and York counties. Last year, four students lived with families in Linglestown.

For complete information on the LEC homestay program, contact Linglestown resident John Robinson, LEC Capital Region coordinator, at (717) 545-2979 or e-mail.
