Family exchange can be a very good option for those applicants that do not want to be an au pair, but would like to live with a host family during a Gap Year while completing their studies or working (Spanish language school, secondary school, vocational school, university, internships, voluntary work, language assistant, etc). It is a reciprocal exchange that works this way: your family in your country host an exchange student from Spain and her/his family in Spain host you in exchange as well. Host families provide with full board and private room.
We connect two kids (or young adults) from carefully selected families from different countries to exchange students with each other. Families host a student and send a student to another host family.Both children have the opportunity to discover a new culture and learn a new language. Immersion is complete.
We have families in Spain interested in finding a host family for their kid. In exchange they would host their kid as well. They don’t have to be of same age and they don’t have to be together in same home. Normally kids hosted in Spain are 18 y.o. or older and Spanish kids are between 15 and 18 y.o. For the placement we would use services of a local guardianship agency in each country where the kid is hosted to provide support to student and family. Families will save the money of full board and lodging mainly.
If you are a student or family interested in a reciprocal exchange, please contact us.
