What about the accommodation ?
You will be accommodated in a private home with full board in exchange for 15 hours of language tuition per week with one or more family members (usually with kids).
The family commits itself to welcome you with full board with flexibility regarding lunch during the week. Indeed, your hosts, if they have a professional activity during the day, will not be able to share lunch with you. You are invited to take care of yourself for these meals (by cooking yourself or eating out).
Your host will provide you with a single room. The common areas will be shared: bathroom, kitchen,…
Each family is chosen based on their sincere desire to learn your language and share their own culture.
A profile presenting the family and the place of accommodation will be sent sent with the placement confirmation.
Just like any member of the family, you are expected to take care of your room, common areas and respect the family’s way of life.
You are not considered as an au pair, but you must participate in the daily life of the house (help with meal preparation, washing dishes, daily tidying up…).
