OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS TO
EXPERIENCE FRENCH CULTURE AT HOME,
PRACTICE THEIR FRENCH, MAKE NEW FRIENDS AND
REDISCOVER AND SHARE THE BEAUTY OF NEW ZEALAND
Welcoming an overseas exchange student into your home is a very rewarding experience. Host families help provide students with the chance to experience life in New Zealand. It’s a great way to practice your French, share your stories and establish a lifelong link to a family in France.
All students have at least basic levels of English, would attend a school in your local area and live the life of a local. If families would like a selection of student profiles sent to them to review and decide which student may fit into a particular family best, please contact us or reply to this email.
The Laver family had a wonderful time hosting their exchange student from France, Zachary This is what Host Mum Jo Laver shared with us about their experience “Our 12 year old son was the only one who was not keen at all. But now Zach is here, they get along quite well, sharing games on ipods / iphones and hanging out with friends. It has been great for him to have a ‘brother’. My 6 year old girl who is always the life of the party keeps on hugging and talking to poor Zach! Zach has taken everything in his stride and it has been a great experience for all of us.”
