C'est FINI pour recommencer

A big MERCI BEAUCOUP to every student, professor, intern, buddy, visitor . . . who contributed to a unique Chez Vous Summer 2014! We were sad to see you leave, but know very well that one has to leave in order to come back. Que Dieu vous bénisse et à la prochaine !

Updated on August 7, 2014



Up to the last week of the summer program, the Institute is buzzing with activity - besides finishing the French Christian History class (including writing papers and a final exam), life is filled with cultural exchanges, historical excursions, meeting new people and so much more.

Updated on July 28, 2014



Improving in French constantly not only thanks to class, but all these many opportunities to apply what one learns, experiencing a new culture and making French friends, serving in the local community, learning more about the Christian faith in a different context. This is what Chez Vous Summer student's daily life looks like.

Merci pour un bon programme Groupe C - vous allez nous manquer et bon voyage !

les journées en français

Le matin on mange du bon pain.
Toute la matinée on boit du café français pour que pendant les cours on reste bien éveillé.
Au déjeuner on discute les idées pour plus tard et si on n'a rien de prévu comme une excursion pour découvrir la Normandie ou un rendez-vous avec les buddies, on reste au village où on se promène ou on bronze à la plage ... et avant qu'on puisse réagir, ce que l'on appelait "l'avenir" il y a encore un instant est devenu le présent.
Malgré les devoirs qui restent à faire (et ceux-là on aime guère), on passe du bon temps avec des amis et on est content que la journée ne soit pas encore finie…
