Your mission is to teach English to your host family, in return, they will provide you full board and lodging. The tutoring stay is considered as a ‘cultural exchange’. Your future host will be curious to learn about your customs and similarly you will share the everyday life of a French family.
Tutoring is a part time job which allows you to have a lot of free time to discover the country and learn french. You will be asked to teach English to your host family 15 hours/week, in return, they will provide you full board and lodging. The key to a successful stay will be a mutual respect and consideration created between you and the family. With this new program, we offer you the opportunity to come in Paris for a short stay, sharing your culture with a french family to discover our culture and language.
