Organisme de Séjours Educatifs Francophones (OSEF )
OSEF invites you to discover France, Belgium or Spain and improve your language skills in French. They have been organizing linguistic exchanges with Ontario since 1995 and since 1998 with Alberta and British-Columbia. Exchanges occur from mid-August to the beginning of November organizing reciprocal student exchanges for teens for 1-3 months programs and stay with host families. While in Europe participants will attend school and experience the daily life of the family.
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.
