Most families are less than an hour from the centre of Paris so a Global Projects programme is a great way to explore this historical capital whilst enjoying the benefits of living like a local in your own community. Paris also has easy access to the fast train, so you can spend your weekends exploring the regional areas of France such as Nice, Provence or Bretagne. 

You will experience the day-to-day life of a French family, share experiences and in many cases have the opportunity to take part in family activities. Our host families are not only excited to learn English but also love to share the character of their country, culture and cuisine.

What you do

Volunteer 15 hours a week, helping your host family with conversational English.  Many French families want to learn English or improve their spoken English through conversation.  In exchange they will provide a private room and 3 home-cooked meals each day and engage you with their local community.

Why do it?

  • Cost effective  - less than $50 per day including meals & accommodation
  • Improve your French language skills 
  • Experience the French culture as a 'local'
  • Enhance your CV with international experience
  • Peace of mind – AIFS has over 50 years experience offering quality cultural exchange programmes
