Why Germany?

Living with a host family and caring for their children, you’ll get the true and authentic German experience.

 

Taking part in their day-to-day routine, you’ll become part of the family, sharing your culture and customs while embracing theirs. Plus, with an included 90 EUR educational allowance, it’s also a great opportunity to brush up on your German, so you are fluent by the time you head back home.
