This is an incredible opportunity to immerse yourself in the German language, culture, and cuisine for 2 or 3 months. You'll have the chance to experience life as a local by staying with a carefully selected host family and truly become a part of the community. In exchange for up to 15 hours a week, you'll help your host family improve their conversational English skills. The rest of your time is yours to explore your new surroundings, discover the hidden gems of the community, and meet friendly locals. We will also include your meals and a private bedroom to call home in your new German community.
