Homestays with families in Spain (Madrid)

Homestays with families in Spain (Madrid and other cities)

Middle-class families in Madrid and elsewhere in Spain offer full board (free meals and accommodation) with your own room in the family's home. This offer only applies to Native English speakers from the US, UK, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

Most people who take advantage of this are typically under 30 years old. This is what families request.

Host families can't wait to have Native English Speakers over so they can practise English at home!

In exchange all you need to do is engage in conversational English for 2 hours every evening with the host family, Monday to Thursday. You can do your own thing during the day and Friday to Sunday!

Your deal is making sure the family engages in English for TWO hours per night Mon-Thurs, and for this you are getting full board and free accommodation with the family. I attach several pictures where you can see Americans with their hosts, they stayed in Spain the summer of Protected content .

This is NOT a job I am offering, but a chance to come live in Spain for a few weeks or months and enjoy the Spanish lifestyle at its fullest.

This is an offer of accommodation with nice families who have already done this in the past and can't wait to practise English at home, with you.

You can earn some money by privately tutoring English outside the family, take Spanish lessons, visit the city or travel during the weekends -- this is totally up to you.

If you are interested or know someone who might be, please send me your resume/CV and I will contact you for an interview over Skype. Before you commit, I will put you in touch with the family (by email or videocall) so that you can find out more about them, making sure it's a good match. I will also need a police background check.

References and testimonials upon request.

Homestays are a minimum of 1 month, and typically last for up to 3 months (Length is flexible)

There is an administration fee of Euro250, payable only once you are settled with the family in Spain. This fee is paid once (NOT per month).
Plane Ticket to Spain NOT included. You must pay for your own plane ticket to Spain.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.
