Participants will live with a host family in France or Germany and receive free board and lodging. In return they will spend 15 hours a week (weekends free) teaching or conversing in English with members of the family.
Participants spend the first day participating in an orientation (food and accommodation included).
You can attend a language school or travel around your host country on weekends but you will need to make all your own arrangements and cover all costs. This is a program for adults, so you will have the freedom to meet friends, do sports, go out in the evenings etc., but you also have the obligation to behave responsibly and respect your family.
The Live & Learn program is a great option for Gap year students and for applicants wanting to stay overseas for further travels.
If you would like to extend your stay in either France or Germany beyond the program why not apply for a working holiday visa? You do not need this classification of visa to participate on the Live & Learn program but it gives you the option to travel and work after the program ends for up to 12 months.
