Teens from Spain and France will be paying their annual visit to our region this summer. They will be studying English and enjoying a month of fun and sight-seeing spanning our region, Niagara Falls and Toronto. Canada Linc English,
the company which organizes the program, is looking for families with
an extra bedroom and some spare time, to host these young people in
their homes for one month. Programs are being run for both Guelph, and, Fergus-Elora.
While in Guelph, the teens will attend English language classes every weekday morning at the University of Guelph. In the afternoon, they participate in cultural and sports activities. The program is organized so that working families who are away during the day can qualify as hosts. Families are asked to provide a bedroom and meals and welcome their visitor into their everyday life.
Burnett has managed these programs since 1992 and, in that time, has
welcomed close to 2,000 students to the Guelph community. Many students and families have formed lasting attachments and continue to visit each other. “Twenty
years is a long time to devote to the same program,” said Burnett,
adding that she never gets bored as there are always new faces and
are expected to spend most of their evenings and weekends with their
host families and integrate into our Canadian way of life. They are free to take weekend trips with their host families if invited.
program in Fergus Elora is a homestay with activities as mentioned. One
family member must be at home during the day as the students only
participate in two afternoon activities and one day trip per week. The
remuneration is 820 for 4 weeks. Contact is Mark Haynes at firstname.lastname@example.org
