L&F provides extensive preparation materials for travelers to help you prepare for what to expect, how to be a good traveler and how to make the most of this unique opportunity.
Passports & Visas
Every successful program abroad starts with a passport and other important documentation. L&F works with each traveler to make sure they have what they need (and don’t lose it!). Read more…
Budgeting & Spending Money
L&F provides suggestions for everything from savings plans for students to budgeting and spending money during the program, based on years of feedback from past teachers and their travelers. Read more…

Traveling with a group is different than family or solo travel so L&F gives specific suggestions to both teachers and travelers about what to pack, what to leave home and more! Read more…
So much of the success of a family stay depends on an open attitude and willingness to dive in, but there is still plenty of preparation that can help get every student ready themselves to make the most of their time with their host families. Read more…
There is no better way to prepare for a family stay abroad than by participating in the L&F hosting program. Teachers who help find host families understand the importance of managing expectations and clear communication during the stay, while students and parents experience how the foreign family will be feeling, too.

I am very grateful for the thorough, supportive, accurate and up-to-date information and suggestions provided frequently by L&F.
The trip was so well-organized and the parents were kept so well-informed. It made us feel confident that [our daughter] would be in good hands.
I am really impressed with your pre-trip mailings and communication. I have worked with other companies, and L&F is taking care of so much more, in such an organized way! As a teacher, I am busy enough, and having everything laid out so nicely is refreshing.
