Host Families

Who takes part in our program?

People living in Frankfurt (Oder) or in Slubice:

  • families and singles

What is the job of a host family?

A host family hasn't got any obligations. It depends on the creativity and inventiveness of the host family and the students. The host family:

  • can show the city and make the student familiar with the new environment
  • will try to help with any problem the student might have to face, e.g. medical aid, the authorities...
  • can help to improve German
  • will NOT provide the student with any accommodation!
