Former student comments on this program:
“This was a dream I’ve had for 30 years. I finally got up the courage this year to do it. Lingua Service and France Langue made the planning easy. Vacation N’ Learn is the perfect way to combine vacation with education. Immersion is definitely the best way to learn a language.”
