Spend 9 or 11 weeks in France, Belgium or Spain to live a cultural exchange
OSEF invites you to discover France, Belgium or Spain and improve your language skills.
You will host your exchange student from mid-August to the beginning of November. The exchange student will attend your school (with the approval of your Principal) and will share the daily life of your family. Exchange students are selected very carefully and we review all the documents we require. You will travel to your host family at the beginning of February and will return at the end of April. While in Europe you will attend school and experience the daily life of the family.
The cost of the program is $3300,00 for students in Ontario + $400 Airport Tax **
and $4190 for students in other provinces + $400 Airport Tax **.
** Airport taxes exceeding $300 will be paid for by OSEF.
OSEF’s team is available during all the process. If students suffer any problems we always find rapid solutions: change of family is a possibility always in cooperation with the parents.
A $400 deposit is required with the preliminary application form ($300 non-refundable). Payment dates may be extended at no further costs.
For more information, contact the provincial coordinator nearest to you.
OSEF has been organizing linguistic exchanges with Ontario since 1995 and since 1998 with Alberta and British-Columbia.
This program is made possible with the collaboration of the School Districts of the Canadian provinces and the volunteer coordinators. The Association promotes foreign language learning, personal growth and development, increases awareness of another culture and fosters a global perspective.
