Host family in Switzerland

Hello all,

I would like to know if there is any agency or websites that I can find a host family... it would be for 6 months.

Re: Host family in switzerland

Anywhere in Switzerland? Or are you looking for somewhere closer to Basel, than the previous option you gave, of living with your father in Geneva while you are studying for your A levels?

It seems that you were not happy with your previous school in Egypt, but why are you not just enrolling in a different school there? There are several choices of private schools that run the National English curriculum.

Host family? What town? And, will you live there with your dad or alone?

Re: Host family in Switzerland

If you are looking for a host family in Basel, it might be a good idea to narrow down your search, and get in touch with a group, or groups, of people that might be specifically suitable- be it on religious or cultural grounds, or Tennis clubs, or whatever. Find out those groups (eg a Church, or cultural centre, or tennis club, etc- you only can work out what groups you could identify with)- then get in touch with their 'leaders'. Much more likely to happen that way.

We lived near a big University in the UK, and we hosted several students who just 'knocked' at the door and asked if we had a spare room!
But that is rather unusual (students who had arrived at the last minute due to the UK clearing system)- one lived with us for 3 years.

Re: Host family in Switzerland

I am mainly looking around basel as I will be studying there, my father won't come with me as he works in Geneva thats why I am looking for a host family or even a place that can be supervised if you know what I mean like a building full of students but supervised.
