Nov 2000

Je m'appelle Sandra Sanders-West. Each summer, I take a group of High School students to Nantes, France. We spend the month of July taking excursions around Brittany, learning the customs of french families and exploring Paris. This will be my tenth year of Student Travel to France. My company is S.I. L. C. Sejours Internationaus Linguistiques et Culturels. If you would like to have your student attend a Parent Information meeting with you, please call me at: (510)208-2958. The student group usually consisits of students from several Bay Area High School. The group is limited to twelve students. SVSWVAL@aol.com


Sejours Internationaux Linguistiques et Culturelles (S.I.L.C.) is an organization that has taken Berkeley High students to France for the last ten years. IF you would like information, please call: Sandra Sanders-West at (510)836-1154. This year's program will leave on the 10th of July and return on the 10th of August. (4/00)
I want to share info. regarding the SILC program of cultural exchange in France. My daughter took part in this wonderful program in the summer between her sophomore and junior years and she had a ball! Students are placed with a family in Nantes for just over 3 weeks. At the end of the trip, the group spends 3 or 4 days in Paris before flying home. Sandy West will be taking the group for the tenth time this summer. While in Nantes, the group gets together for outings every 3 or 4 days. This is very comforting for a lot of kids- just knowing that they will be seeing English-speaking people on a regular basis! The American students not only bond with each other but with their French family and sometimes the families of other kids on the program. Nantes is a safe city and students can easily navigate its public transportation if they wish. My daughter returned the following summer to her family and, the summer after that, the French daughter came to stay with us. If you are interested, you can reach Sandy at 836-1154 at home or 238-2922 at work or e-mail at svswval@aol.com
