    Hello everyone
    My name is Alix. I live in Carcassonne : south of France.
    I’m looking for 1 English or German native speaker (female preferable) living in Europe or in France (more convenient for the distance).
    I offer an immersion in the French culture against an average language exchange day of 4 hours. 2 days free not necessary on the weekend. It doesn’t matter if you don’t speak French at all as I’ll speak to you in your native language.
    You would share a French family life. You would have your own bedroom and free access to the washing machine, Wi-fi, …
    Minimum 15 days and no maximum length : it depends on both of our expectations. I can accept only 1 person as a non smoker and I’m sorry no animals are allowed.

    For more details, don’t hesitate to contact me.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I live in a detached house typical for the south, situated in a calm area in the surroundings of the medieval “Cité of Carcassonne”. We are 80 km from the sea, 120 km from the mountains called the “Pyrénées”. The town has connection by train, coach and air : the main flying company is the Ryanair. The closer airport for people arriving from the States or Canada is in Toulouse (120km far from Carcassonne).
