    Detailed programme


    This homestay English teaching programme is a great opportunity to experience Spanish lifestyle and improve your linguistic skills at a low cost. You live with a host family and in exchange for your own room and meals; you share your language with the host family for around 15 hours per week.
    This programme has a focus on cultural exchange; it is designed for flexible people wishing to experience the Spanish culture in depth.
    Participating in this programme implies sharing daily life with a Spanish family, learning their language and culture and adopting it as their own for a period of time. At the same time, the participant will share his/her own language and culture with the members of the local family.

    Duties: You help the family, usually the kids, with their English studies for up to 15 hours per week. Sometimes the teaching is for adults only.
    Lessons can be more or less formal, depending upon the family needs.
    When a placement has been agreed by all parts, you will have to discuss with the family what form the lessons will take: the number of formal lessons, dinner conversation, sharing activities with the children, playing games in English, etc. It is also important to agree a schedule so everybody is clear about when you will be teaching and when it is your "time off".
    It is very important that you prepare teaching tools in advance using the many web resources, as well as bringing a dictionary and a grammar book to refer to.

    Benefits:
    - A cheap way to live in Spain
    - Experience the Spanish culture in depth
    - Improve your Spanish skills
    - Use this teaching experience to enhance your resume
    - Make lifelong friends

    Living Conditions

    The family offers full board and private accommodation. However, some
    families are not at home during the day, parents work outside and
    children are at school all day long. In this case, language assistants
    are responsible for their own lunch (you can use the kitchen or take a
    snack in the city centre). Language assistants should be flexible with
    lunches and adapt themselves to the reality of the family.
    Facilities of the house are shared with the family, private bathroom is sometimes available.
    Personal expenses are at your own charge even on family outings (cinema tickets, entrance fees..)
    Each
    family is interviewed and carefully selected taking into account their
    genuine desire to learn a new language and share their culture with the
    participants.
    Full details of the accommodation will be provided with the placement offer.


    Responsibilities:
    As being part of the family, you will be expected to keep your room tidy and clean and respect the host family’s rules.
    You will not be requested to act as a domestic help or an au pair - namely
    cooking / cleaning or child-minding. However, you will be expected to take a reasonable role with day to day household chores, such as helping to prepare meals, washing up, general tidying etc.
