  • Description


    How about spending a nice time with a traditional French family? Help our children with English & enjoy the pleasure of living in the countryside, with full-time access to a nice warm swimming-pool pool in the garden for about 2 weeks in July. We (my 2 children, my husband and I) live in a small village situated in the countryside but only about 30km away from the bustling town of Poitiers.We're looking for a British, American, Canadian or Australian young person, preferably not shy, to speaker English to our 2 children. The kids are 12 and 10 years old and my husband works a lot at the farm, so we'd just like a simple and talkative person to share some good moments with us. We are very easy-going and would like you to enjoy our life here with our cat, dog... What about going for a bike ride with our son or coming with us to a concert ? There's a nice festival called « Les heures vagabondes » around here...
    Prêts à partager le quotidien d'une famille française ? You'll be our guest!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As a language teacher here in France, I could help any student with their French. Anyone staying with us could also enjoy the quiet moments spent in our big garden (no neighbours around), relax around our swimming-pool, or visit cultural places around. We'll consider you as our guest & will take you around for some visits with great pleasure! Ever heard about the Futuroscope? Châteaux de la Loire are 1,5h from here... Fancy a day-trip to La Rochelle with us? Let's go together!!! We're used to having english-speaking guests...

  • Help


    We don't really need any help, just do a few activities with the children, making them speak English & sometimes play with them. Our son is quite sporty & would love someone to play football, golf, tennis with him or go for a bike ride. I'd also like you to do some English exercices/language practise with them both, which would not exceed 3 hours a day. Some basic help with cleaning the pool or garden around will be welcome occasionnally (when we also do it).

    We consider hosting a volunteer as an enriching experience for all the members of ours family. You'll be our guest for 2 weeks but be ready to answer the kids'questions & play... No babysitting expected, might just happen once. We've already had 2 English girls in the past & have kept in touch since.
