Je ne conseille pas un séjour à tous les parents ou étudiants qui souhaitent un échange agréable et sympathique au sein de cette famille. Le chaleureux échange par mail avant le séjour de notre fils ne s'est pas retrouvé pas dans la vie quotidienne avec Siobban. Honte à vous Madame d'avoir volé l'argent d'un enfant, d'avoir conservé le sac offert par sa grande soeur, tout comme ses lunettes de soleil. Honte à vous de lui avoir fait croire après nos échanges que vous lui enverrez son petit sac oublié, honte à vous de vous être rabaissée à voler un enfant. En résumé et malgré ce message, je sais pertinemment que Siobban ne ressentira aucune culpabilité à son geste et à son mensonge tant auprès des parents d'Alexis que d'Alexis lui-même. Une seule véritable sortie sur les 7 jours (excepté deux rencontres avec la famille), des journées passées seul ou à garder le fils de 9 ans ! Peu ou pas d'échange, reflet de la réelle générosité de Siobban. Cordialement (Note Linguifamily: Le sac a été renvoyé par Siobhan et bien reçu par son propriétaire)


Great stay for our 13 years old daughter

Our Daughter had a 1 week stay with Siobhan and her family. She really appreciated her stay. She was considered like family, participated in many activities. Thanks to Siobhan organisation she even had the chance to participate to a horse camp for 2 days. Elisa also enjoyed playing with the lovely animals of the family. She made progress in english thanks to this full immersion. Thank you again for hosting her.


Excellent séjour dans la campagne irlandaise !

Nos 2 enfants sont restés 10 jours chez Siobhan et ont été très bien accueillis et intégrés à la famille. Siobhan a été présente et a proposé des activités (visite de Dublin, plage). Ils se sont aussi tres bien entendu avec Katie, ce qui a permis de bien discuter et de leur faire prendre confiance en anglais.
