Host Family Request

Over the past 2 years, Salesian College has provided a 4 week Cultural Immersion experience for a Year 10 student from France.

Once again we are pleased to provide this opportunity in partnership with Nacel. We are looking for a volunteer family to host the student from the beginning of Term 2.

Welcoming a language student is a once in a life time opportunity! Accepting a native French student gives you the perfect opportunity to learn about another culture combined with promoting our Australian lifestyle whilst developing new friendships! For those learning French, the value for the Australian students realising their ability to converse with this person and in turn the benefit of continuing their language studies is profound.

Your daily routine will include your host brother or sister attending school with you and participating in extra curricula activities as they arise. The language students immerse themselves into your family and school allowing both of you to explore other cultures, absorb other ideas and, as a result, improve in compassion and insight.

Nacel Australia would like to hear from kindhearted families who have a genuine interest in other cultures and are interested in welcoming a language student from France into their home from 15 July – 9 August or 27 July – 23 August 2014.
