    Votre programme détaillé

    Detailed programme:
    This programme is based and focuses on cultural exchange. You and your family have the possibility of experiencing French culture and language without greatly altering your daily routine. This programme is a great opportunity to develop your French language skills and to provide your children with personalised support. Speaking French on a daily basis is the best way to prepare for an oral, pass an exam or undertake a new project with confidence.

    This is a volunteer programme between a family who is willing and able to welcome a French Speaker into their home; and a French person who wants total immersion in your culture while educating the host family about their culture.

    The Aliore association acts as the intermediary ; organising a suitable placement that corresponds to the family’s needs and those of the French speaker. We are at hand to make sure that everything goes well during the placement. However, this programme requires open-mindedness and flexibility to be a successful and enriching experience for both parties.

    Place: This programme is open to all native English Speaking countries as UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA…

    Dates: All year round

    Duration: 4 weeks

    What you receive:
    The French assistant offers up to 15 hours of French a week. The lessons can be informal, based on activities such as games, sport, music, etc. using only the French language; conversations on a daily basis (during meal times for example) continual personalised support for you and your children. The lesson programme is determined in advance between the language assistant and the family, so that certain language skills are addressed within the weekly timetable.

    What you provide:
    You will lodge the French assistant (in an individual room) and he/she will take meals with the family. The person you welcome into your home has not come as a guest but to become a member of the family, to take part in your family’s activities. French assistants are not an au pair, but as a member of the family will take care of their own room and will give a helping hand.

    Participants profile:
    The assistants are volunteers. Candidates are aged from 18 to 77, they are graduated from High school and are native French speakers. They have a certain level of English and are fully insured to cover their stay. Each applicant is interviewed and carefully selected taking into account their genuine desire to share their language and culture with their host-family.
