This year, once again, some students at school in France have chosen to go back to their home country to spend Christmas with their families, whilst others are staying with their host family in France.
SILC offers the students a choice:
- Some take advantage of the two-week holiday to return to their country to see their family and friends and spend Christmas with them.
- Others stay and celebrate Christmas in France to experience the traditions of this festival; the Christmas decorations, the markets, the meals and other ‘end of year’ festivities.
Note: It is important to inform SILC of the student’s choice when registering for the stay: this helps to facilitate the placements and the French families are informed right from the start.
