From art to food, from stunning and varied countryside to flamboyant fashion, Italy has it all. Come see for yourself and volunteer to teach English for 1, 2 or 3 months in Italy!
Teaching English to a host family in Italy enables you to travel to Italy as a live-in guest with a warm, welcoming Italian host family.
With a deep focus on cultural exchange, our host families are not only excited to learn English but also can’t wait to share the characteristics of Italy, its culture and cuisine with you.
No qualifications are necessary for our cultural home stay – just a strong desire to be an enthusiastic and fun helper as you explore every day English words and basic sentences. It might be simple flash cards with the kids, or calling out the English word for everyday household items
All accommodation and meals are included in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become an Italian local!
Most of our host families live close to Rome – a perfect bases to explore in your free time. We can also organise placements in other areas.
Because you’ll only be tutoring 15 hours per week, you’ll have plenty of time to travel this beautiful, diverse country and make Italian friends!
Sound exciting? It is. Our applicants rave about what we do.
We guide you through the entire process and help you find a great host family guaranteed -so you have peace of mind before you leave Australia.
We spend a great deal of time on finding you a perfect host family match. We spend a lot of time understanding your goals and hopes for your trip away. There needs to be a “connection” between you and your host family. You will Skype, call or email your family – as many times as you’d like – and get to know them. Then we lock away your host family so you can pack and say goodbye to home knowing that your new home in Italy is locked in, ready and waiting.
Our Italian host families know that your main purpose for coming to Italy is to learn the language and to experience the amazing rich tapestry of Italian life.
Although your host family won´t be paying you a weekly allowance, in exchange for 15 hours tuition you will receive your own private room and full board 7 days a week.
JCR can also help you seek out additional paid private tuition opportunities. Private tuition earns you 10-15 euros per hour.
NO application fee: $0 – pay nothing until you have accepted a family’s offer
Placement fee –$600
Payable ONLY when you secure a Italian host family
We do not seek any payment until you are 100% satisfied with your chosen host family
It is our host family guarantee
