"It was a great experience and I would definitely do it over again. The atmosphere was relaxed and chilled out which was good. It was organized and well planned out. Homestay family, was in the middle of Nice so that was very convenient, the 'mom' of the family was wonderful, friendly, and very nice.
Future Advice: go with a positive attitude and an open mind."
