A series designed to bolster the confidence of teenage French students, by showing the adventures of a 16-year-old English boy called Stephen Weatherseed, visiting France for the first time and going to stay with Eymery family in Grenoble.

Stephen speaks French with an English accent and does not use a very advanced vocabulary, so that viewers who are unsure of their French are not put off. He also narrates the episodes in English. His adventures are of the domestic and sight-seeing variety and perhaps typical of what any young English visitor to France might get up to, and give viewers a taste of French life as well as the French language.

All eight episodes of the series were shown in 1975 and 1976. Four of them (episodes 1, 2, 6 & 7) were shown again in 1977 as part of Thames Television's new umbrella French-language series French Studies.
