YMCA Youth Exchanges Canada
“Students were able to practice their French in an authentic way and use French outside the walls of the school. While riding the bus with the students, I overheard a conversation between 2 boys. The boy from MB was speaking French and the boy from QC was speaking English. Both boys getting the most out of the [language exchange] experience”
