How does it work ?

LinguiFamily is a language immersion exchange platform for families.

 

It allows individuals all over the world to connect and to organize language immersion trips for children, adolescents and students, from 10 to 25 years years old.

3 options for families :

  • IMMERSION : send their children to a personally selected host family for an immersion stay.
  • HOST : have a young guest, who is personally chosen, stay with them.
  • EXCHANGE : send your child to a host family and have the host family’s child stay with you in return.

 

On the platform information related to families and their ways of life is shown and it is up to you to choose the best match.
