Homestay Tutor In Germany
This is an immersion opportunity to learn German and enjoy the German culture and food for 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 Germany for up to 15 hours each week and live like a local for up to 3 months when you help a family in Germany 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 Germany by simply speaking English the way you normally do at home. Also, you also have a unique opportunity to learn or improve your German!
In a matter of hours, you're walking around your new community like a real German 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 have been in Germany for just over a month. GeoVisions was extremely helpful in the time before I came. This is my first time living abroad, so of course, I was a bit anxious in the time before I left.
I had a person with GeoVisions assigned to me, so I had someone to answer any questions, both over phone and email. This definitely made me feel more comfortable about leaving.
Since arriving, my local agent has checked in with me several times and is always available for questions. I would recommend this trip to anyone. It's a great way to experience a new country!

"The people in Germany are so friendly. When they find out I'm from Seattle, I get lots of questions and comments about the rock scene!
I came over to Germany with the goal of learning the language and learning more about the culture. My goals haven’t changed, I’ve just added a few! I am totally learning German thanks to being immersed in it. I recommend this experience.
