The Language Tutoring Program
Do you want to come to Germany and enjoy working with children but you only have limited time and limited childcare experience? In that case our Language Tutoring Program might be right for you! It is a great way to live for 1 - 3 months in Germany. The program is a cultural exchange program where you will receive free room & board with a German host family in exchange for teaching your native language to the children of the family. You will also have the opportunity to explore Germany, your destination in the heart of Europe!
The program is for everyone, who is a native English, Spanish or French speaker, loves to spend time with children and who wants to learn about German culture first-hand!
Why you should become a language tutor
You will not only get to learn about the German culture and language through your host family but you will also have the opportunity to make international friends and return home with an abundance of new experiences. And the international experience looks great on your resume!

Your Responsibilities as a Language Tutor
Each host family is different and therefore the responsibilities will slightly vary. This will have to do with the age of the children or the daily schedule of the host family. However, the maximum hours and the type of work you are asked to do are laid out and are accepted by each family prior to the program start and include the following:
Teaching your native languege (Englisch, Spanish or French) to the children (and possibly adults of the family) for a maximum of 15 hours per week
Helping in the house just as a regular family member
Sometimes also the parents might be interested in brushing up on their English/Spanish/French with you, too
During the application process you will have the opportunity to speak with your prospective host family on the phone. During the conversation it is important to talk about each others expectations for the program. You should also speak with the host family about the exact schedule and what type of language support they are interested in.
