Yvonne, John and family

There are six in our family. I’m an English teacher in a secondary school and John works as a sales representative. Dylan is in his twenties and works as an operative. Amy and Leah are seventeen. They love sports and play GAA football. Maya is thirteen and also loves all sports, including soccer, GAA football, and swimming.
We have hosted students since 2013 and have had over 40 students staying in our home from Spain, France, Russia, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, and America. Students stay either for some or all of the academic year or for shorter stays. We have hosted academic students each year since 2013 and shorter-term students since 2014.

For academic students, I can host 13-18 year olds, boys or girls. I can organize work experience in our locality and/or an academic stay in a secondary school.
For summer students, I can offer a work experience stay for older teenagers, similar to what Irish students experience in their fourth year of secondary school, along with some family activities.
I am unable to facilitate an immersion experience with no structured activities for younger children or teenagers.

I can help you find information about a particular place in the local private school where I work. Just let me know what you're looking for.

I can also arrange work experience opportunities for older teenagers in various local businesses. Students have found this experience to be very enjoyable.

Proposed activities:

A typical day with us

We live near a small town. On a typical school day, we go to work and school before 8am. In the evenings, we go to our sports, take walks with the dog, and go to the gym.
We love to explore new places and nature. On weekends, there are always sports matches and events. Sometimes, we go on trips, either outdoors to attractions or indoors to the cinema, activity centers, or shopping centers.
We also enjoy watching movies and playing card games. We love food, so cooking and baking are a key part of our days and weekends.

Yvonne est d'une grande générosité, gentillesse, réactivité. Elle est très organisée et active. J'admire son investissement et sa patience. Elle nous a aidé pour l'inscription au collège, l'uniforme, les livres scolaires, les inscriptions aux sports, le forfait téléphonique, etc...Nous avons échangé plusieurs messages et photos, ce qui était très rassurant et sympathique. Nolwenn s'est très vite intégrée dans la famille. Elle a noué une relation très forte avec Maya : quelle chance de l'avoir rencontrée et d'avoir lié une telle complicité ! La maison est très belle et proche du collège en voiture. Le séjour de Nolwenn à été une expérience extraordinaire et Yvonne et sa famille y ont grandement contribué. Un grand merci à eux ❤️


An amazing family

If you had to choose between Yvonne's family or any other family, I would tell you to go to Yvonne's house with your eyes closed. I spent 2 weeks and a half there, and I think that I had the most awesome experience ever. I was really integrated in the family, as if I had been there for years and years, and that helped so much with the fact that I was far from my home and family. Yvonne did so much amazing things for me ! I did a work experience in two differents shops, that I both enjoyed so much. I participated to so many activities with them, I really felt like a part of the family !!! Thanks a milion for everything Yvonne <3 SI vous aviez à choisir entre Yvonne et n'importe quelle autre famille, je vous dirais d'aller chez Yvonne les yeux fermés. J'y ai passé 2 semaines et demie et je pense que j'ai vécu l'expérience la plus géniale de ma vie. J'étais vraiment intégré dans la famille, comme si j'y étais depuis des années et des années, et cela m'a beaucoup aidé du fait que j'étais loin de chez moi et de ma famille. Yvonne a fait tellement de choses incroyables pour moi ! J'ai effectué un stage dans deux magasins différents, que j'ai tous les deux beaucoup apprécié. J'ai participé à tellement d'activités avec eux, je me sentais vraiment comme faisant partie de la famille !!! Merci infiniment pour tout Yvonne <3

Notre fille de 16 ans a passé 2 très bonnes semaines chez Yvonne. Elle a été très bien accueillie et intégrée à la famille. Elle a pu aller également en classe quelques jours ce qui fut une experience enrichissante. Enfin, elle a également découvert la ville et ses environs. Yvonne a été très disponible et a répondu à nos questions, je recommande son accueil./ Our 16-year-old daughter spent 2 very good weeks with Yvonne. She was very well received and integrated into the family. She was also able to go to school for a few days, which was an enriching experience. She also got to know the city and its surroundings. Yvonne was very available and answered all our questions. I recommend her hospitality.
