October 17, 2014 Trip I'll Never Forget!
This was probably the one of the best decisions I've made about how to spend my summer. I've always wanted to visit France and learn the culture by living there and this was my dream come true. My host family was awesome. I lived with a mom with two children. She was extremely nice and spoke slowly to me at first so that I ca... - Northwestern University View Entire Review

October 17, 2014 An Adventure In Arles
Studying abroad was an absolutely incredible experience! Every moment was worthwhile! I learned so much about what I am capable of, about the world, about being open-minded, about talking and learning from every person you meet, and about living life as an adventure! I saw every day abroad as a new adventure, with new things to ... - Northwestern University View Entire Review
My experience was definitely worthwhile. I loved bonding with a French family and I now have a special understanding of their culture. The program also forced me to become more adventurous. It gave me more confidence that I could live in France longer-term if I wanted to. - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review

About

The charming Provençal town of Arles, with a 2,000-year-old Roman arena at its center, is famous for its beautiful architecture and its association with Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne, and Picasso. Many dance, music, photography, theater, and folklore festivals take place in and around the city throughout the summer, making it an ideal location for summer study in France.
 
You will immerse yourself in French language study and the culture of the Midi region of France. A highlight of this program are the language-intensive lunches that take place at local restaurants, where you practice your French with IES Abroad professors and staff while enjoying the wonderful cuisine of Provence. Fridays are reserved for course-related activities and excursions, such as cooking classes, concerts at the Arènes d’Arles, a Van Gogh walking tour, theater workshops, and more.
