Demi-Pair Programme

Living in a family with children, helping out at the house and studying English at school, is one of the most efficient and cost effective ways to improve your English fairly fast! It can be heaps of fun to work with children!

Especially when you are speaking different languages. Children are honest and speak the plain truth. They are curious and love to find out more about others in a very open way.

Why not combine this experience with a qualification?

The Programme

Students study General English or Academic English with exam preparation in the mornings. They can choose to sit exams such as IELTS, FCE, CAE, TOEIC or TOEFL.

After lunchtime they return to their host families to help out with light housework, picking up children from school and/or looking after them in the afternoons and evenings.

In return they will get full accommodation and free board (3 meals a day).
