Hosting French Students in July (June/ July )

For the last 9 years a programme has been in place offering the opportunity to young French students aged 14-17 years to discover Australia and its education system. We are looking for families willing to host students for the four weeks of their visit. They will travel to and from school with your children.

The purpose of the programme is for these French students to experience living with an Australian family, to see how an Australian school operates, to improve their English language skills through this full immersion and to create a strong friendship with their Anglophone peers.  The programme is highly successful and both Australians and French students greatly enjoy the exchange.  Many families still keep in touch with each other. The students are fully briefed about the school rules, are not to leave the school premises and will attend classes daily. They will be fully covered by appropriate insurance. Host families will be visited prior to the arrival by the organiser to explain the programme. Please contact  Martine  Floyd, email : ,  mob : 0403 019 609  if you are interested in hosting.
