Looking for French Tutor Once per Week Over Summer
Traveling to France at the end of the summer and am searching for a French Tutor once per week during the summer. Native speaker preferred. I lived in France for a year many years ago. I have a base but am very out of practice. My goal is to enter into conversations with my friends and to recover as much as possible of what I have lost. I live in Leschi. Meeting at my house would be ideal but meet also in Mercer Island (I would probably bike). I would pay $40 per hour. If interested, please call Betsy at (206) 755-9675 or email
French Family Moving to Seattle, Looking for Families to Have Our Kids Spend Time With Over the Summer
My kids and I will move from France to Seattle during this summer. I will be busy with some work to do, and I would like my kids to enjoy as much as possible interaction with others. As such, Zoé (14 years old) and Nais (12 yers old) would be happy to spend some time with other kids, and I am looking for such possible shared time. Zoé already speaks a very good English, and Nais is less fluent but has the basis to understand and to discuss. Zoé plays the piano and is really into books. Nais loves sports, and she is always keen for fun and plays. At this stage I do not have any idea of the possible type of exchange, but the idea is to have enjoyable shared experience between kids. Zoé and Nais will be in Seattle from July 22 to August 11. Please email Christophe Hurter at Merci !

ISO Family to Welcome French Student in July
Hello. My name is Augustin Lours. I'm 17 years old, and I live in Paris. I am looking for a family to welcome me for three weeks in July in a city of the USA so that I can improve my English and explore the area. I love to go for walks, draw, take photos, play basketball, skateboard, and visit museums. Next year I’ll be a senior in high school, and afterwards I’m planning to study art in college.
