Hello, we’re a French family who lives nearby Vannes, in Britanny, and we would like to meet an English speaking family who could match us (46, 52, 12 years old). What we would like exactly is spending time with you to practise our English, to discover your country and make you discover ours. And of course, we could teach you French at the same time, if you want. For example, next summer, we could come to your house the first two weeks of August. What do you think about this ?
If you enjoy this idea, write to us, so we could begin to know each other.
Speak with you soon.

We are an English family newly arrived in Cambridge after 11 years away in Singapore and Houston. We have two happy kids – 8 year old girl and a 6 year old boy – who have both been attending a dual-language immersion French International school in Houston for the past few years. The elder one is speaking, reading and writing fairly fluently in French already so we are looking to find a fluent French speaker who can help with child-care whilst also helping to maintain and perhaps even grow the language skills they have developed in the US.
Ideally looking for a live-in au-pair, but could also consider part-time nanny or babysitter, particularly if available to help take the children to school (St Faith’s) in the mornings. We have a lovely house about 10-15mins walk from Cambridge town centre which we will be moving in to hopefully at the end of November once our furniture arrives.
