Homestay Tutor In France

This is an immersion opportunity to learn French and enjoy the French culture and food for 1, 2 or 3 months. You'll live like a local with a carefully screened host family and you'll become a part of the community.

When your host family learns English, you're leaving a lifetime skill that they (and you) will never forget.


Teach English abroad in France up to 15 hours each week and live like a local for up to 3 months when you help a family in France learn English. Don’t worry if you’ve never done this before!  Your new host family is more interested in learning conversational English than they are grammar. You'll have so much fun living in France by simply speaking English the way you normally do at home. Also, you have a unique opportunity to learn or improve your French!

In a matter of hours, you're walking around your new community like a real French citizen. It won’t take long for the locals to start recognizing you and for you to consider your host community your new, temporary home.  It’s real and authentic. Get to know the locals.  Wake up each day and feel a connection.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the application process like?

"I chose to be a hometay tutor in France to gain exposure to the French language and way of life. I was lucky to be placed with a wonderful and generous host family.
My host family took me on many weekend outings, I took French lessons in a local community center and my host family found me a volunteer post for people with handicaps. I met a lot of amazing people that way.

"I had the best experience of my life traveling overseas with GeoVisions. I met people that I consider to now be my life-long friends and I learned so much. I recommend everyone do this at least once in their life."

"The family I was placed with were amazing and lived in Provence. They taught me as much French as I taught English!
Tutoring was so fun. I used games, and we read books together.

The family was resourceful with helping me to get my tourism on while they were still working full time. I could get out each day and explore. Locals started noticing me and would buy me coffee, which gave me an opportunity to try my French and they felt comfortable trying out their English.
My host family took me for a ski trip in the Alps and bought my ski lessons. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
