  • Beschreibung


    Nous recherchons une jeune fille de langue maternelle française, pour un échange linguistique et culturel avec une famille anglaise heureuse avec quatre enfants.

    We are a happy, lively family of six who educate their children at home. We are searching for a french speaking young person to be part of everyday family life, contribute to running the home, and share french with us. In exchange, we will help you with your English, share our education, our trips to the woods and places of natural beauty, visits to historic houses and our home culture.

    About us

    Our children are aged 3-10 years old and they have been home educated since 2016. They love to play creative, imaginary games, like Lego and playmobil. We like to get outside regularly to parks and the woods. We also do learning activities together such as science experiments, studying artists and painters, baking, and learning about the human body and history.

    One parent works for local authority, the other is a researcher at a university. We both work from home.

    Our location

    We live in Coventry, in the centre of England. It is a multicultural city (City of Culture 2021!). We are one hour from London by train, 20 minutes from Birmingham, and close to Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon.

    We live a 20 minute walk from the city centre and have a five bedroom house over three floors. We offer a private room and shared bathroom.

    Workawayer qualities
    We can host one workawayer for 2-6 months, and would welcome a NON smoker.

    We are looking for someone:
    - kind and ready for an adventure
    - with experience with children
    - happy to be in a big, sometimes noisy, family
    - willing to help with basic housework tasks
    - flexible and happy to adapt if plans change
    - honest and able to communicate their needs
    - enthusiastic about teaching us French

  • Arbeit


    Most of your time Monday - Friday will be spent with Laura and the children.

    Your main role is to encourage all of our French learning. The children know a little French from previous workawayers and they are enthusiastic.

    We would like you to join in our routine, which includes:

    Helping with activities at home: baking, crafts, and experiments
    Contributing to basic household tasks: preparing meals and picnics, cleaning up after meals, sorting laundry, tidying
    Attending trips: to parks and woodland, and meetups with other families

    There are plenty of opportunities to use your English, meet new people, and enjoy the local area.

    A parent is always present. You will be asked to cover childcare occasionally.

    Your evenings are free from 18:00, and so are your weekends. We invite you to join us on our weekend trips and events.
