    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will be sharing kitchen with our family. Indeed expect a lot of French to practice around cooking (better if you are at least B1-2 in French) ! .
    What to expect about food organisation :
    We provide food supplies. You can share the family table and meal in the evening - but as we skip lunch - plan on cooking on your own for lunch.
    Vegans can apply but need to cook for themselves : we are meat and carbohydrates eaters ! We provide vegetables but not any vegan processed food. Here you will learn to be "industrial food" NON-dependent !!
