Working with us
We visit all our host teachers at least once a year or every other year, not only to ensure quality immersions for our clients, but also to stay in touch with you, personally.
We believe that a homestay can only thrive with a host family who makes the stay as memorable as possible for the host student. This means for us that we aim for the best possible experience for the family
We would like to have each one of your homestays as memorable for you as it is for the students.
As soon as we suggest your profile to a client, we get in touch with you. Regardless of whether or not they choose you, we'll give you the dates that the client wants to come, the details of the stay and so on. You are always part of the selection process, we handle your trust in us with care.
As the homestay approaches, you might want to prepare everything for your guest. Guests can arrive by train or plane or by car if they live close enough to you.
Homestays can range from one to two weeks
, based on the preferences of you and the client. The client chooses also how many hours of learning they want to include in their immersion stay with you.
When a French guest is living at their homestay teacher's home and constantly speaking English, the learning process will continue all day, not just during the lessons. Games, sports, outings and dinner discussions are an important part of a successful homestay!
After the homestay
Some guests might want to get back to you and share with you how they got on with their English studies or tell you about success they may have had in their exams, some even might want to revisit you and your family! Jennifer will forward the messages she gets and organise a new trip for the participant.
What are the benefits for me and my family?
Obviously you are paid for your teaching and hosting duties, but hosting is so much more than your average job. As an English family living in France, you can facilitate cultural exchange
within France by promoting friendship, understanding, and cooperation between French people and many English families that have chosen France as their home.
These exchanges allow us to better understand our differences and appreciate our similarities, which is even more important as we are adjusting to the new normal. This is one of the most important lessons that you can teach and learn. Furthermore you are able to do all of this without leaving the comfort of your home or your local area.
A company with core values
We are a small agency based in South-West France with strong guiding principles.
We aim to provide our clients with the best service possible. For us quality is more important than quantity
, meaning that we work very hard to make sure our host families are happy.
We are one team: we trust each other to deliver the best possible experience to our clients.
We are on this shared adventure together. We believe in the host families we select and challenge them with great responsibility from the start of our collaboration. Our ethos is built on trust and respect. We invest in the future of Anglais in France by taking good care of our host families, our customers and our staff.
We also have a commitment to sustainability
and to acting in an environmentally friendly way, promoting language stays in France rather than abroad and always advocating for train over car or aircraft transportation when possible.
We try to keep it simple no matter the task at hand. We honor our promises to each other, take full responsibility and never put the blame on anyone else.
We have a long-term perspective. We’ve worked hard to win the hearts of our clients since 2008 so that we can pride ourselves to be their first choice again when they decide to book another homestay for their children.
We stay curious and always look for innovative ideas. Innovation is part of our DNA
We also pass on the agency values to the next generation by offering internship opportunities to students studying hospitality or modern languages.
If you feel you can be part of our family, let us know about you
and we will get back to you!
