I need english speaking young people to come and help with my small summer school in Normandy. French children from 11 years old come to stay with us to improve their English during the summer holidays. We normally have up to 4 per week.

We need someone to join in the fun, going to the beach, visiting tourist attractions and entertaining the kids. Can you impress us with your skills on the PS2 and Wii? Are you a demon at Monopoly? you must speak English all the time. Absolutely no French.

Of course there is cleaning and maybe cooking if you'd like to?

I pay entrances to tourist sites and you get all your meals included....even chocolate!

We live in a large property in rural Normandy, in a small village opposite a medieval church. William the Conqueror used to have a chateau here but it has long gone now.

We are Mum, Scarlett 27, Morgan 22 and Oliver 20. The kids are away working or at uni most of the time.

We are fun and easy going and treat our helpers as part of the family.

We are not far from the golden beaches at Granville/Carrols, (surfing).

We are 30 mins from Le Mont St. Michel.

Christian Dior Museum and Gardens are 20 mins away.

We are 10 mins away from Villedieu les Poeles which is a medieval town made famous by the Knights Templar.

WWII landing beaches all around us. Loads of museums, history and sights.

Paris is a couple of hours by car or train.

We have loads of wildlife around...even quite a few deer.

I smoke about 5 cigs a day.
I am a good cook.

Please come and help us. Oh yes... we have a dog, rescued cats and a gerbil too!
