Lyon International Organization Welcomes Newcomers

As a native of Lyon, I really enjoy being a member of Lyon International since I can welcome newcomers and share a French meal with them…
lyon international 2 1 t Lyon International Organization Welcomes NewcomersLyon International is a voluntary and non-profit making association that welcomes about 1, 000 foreign students, employees or trainees from over 100 nationalities every year in Lyon and its region.
Created in 1979, the association has 350 French members who invite the foreigners for a traditional French meal in their homes to share their culture with the newcomers in a friendly and recreational atmosphere. Most of the French host families speak English and are eager to exchange their local traditions, discover the others’ cultures, but also help the foreigners appreciate the French way of life.
The organization of the meetings is quite simple. Some time after having filled in a guest information sheet, the foreign visitor receives by e-mail an invitation to have dinner with a given family, at a certain date. Then, he contacts the family to accept the invitation or choose another date.
The dinner is usually a family-type meal to share the French traditions of gastronomy and way of life.

Lyon International undoubtedly contributes to Lyon’s cultural and economic influence by giving the foreign visitors a genuine welcome.
The travel specialist Valerie Sutter, who has been offering small group tours to France for the French Traveler Inc. for many years, said that she will always remember her experience as an American in Lyon with the association Lyon International, especially the members’ friendly welcome and kindness.
