Language Tutor Programs

As an English tutor (no need to be a qualified tutor!) you will live with a French family and teach them English. This is a great program for people who want to experience life in France and the French culture in depth. The program has a focus on cultural exchange; host families are not only excited to learn English but are also dying to share the characteristics of their amazing country, culture and cuisine.  The great thing about this program is its flexibility: You can organise your timetable with the host family and the rest of the time is your own to do as you please. This means you can take some French lessons or visit some other parts of France in your spare time.Teaching experience is not required, however you will be expected to be a native English speaker and behave appropriately as a guest in someone’s home. Some knowledge of French is recommended but not required.

Program length

Placements are 1 to 3 months and are available throughout the year.

Program location

Placements are available  all over France.

Program requirements

How does it work? You will be hosted by a French family (a typical family is a couple living with younger children). The program will give you the opportunity to share everyday life with a French family, discover France and teach your mother tongue to people who are willing to learn English. During your free time, you will be able to travel and experience the French culture.

What is expected of you? The family will expect you to spend 15 hours a week helping them improve their English. We will provide you with some lesson structures, texts and ideas but you can be as creative as you like. Some of the things you can do include helping the children with their English homework, watching and discussing a film in English, giving cooking lessons in English or playing Monopoly or another game in English.
