placement for the student. We must receive the following documents
before starting to place:
- Application Form (
- Placement Questionnaire
( see Homepage)

by two person. ( see Homepage)
- An up-to-date Curriculum

Health Insurance Company)

valid driving licence
- Proof that Health
Insurance has been taken out.
The project is at present only for students coming
The Student must be 18 years of age (minimum) and the booking
from the old EU
countries ( before 1st May 2004).
All other students, including the
new EU countries
( after the lst May 2004) need an exemption of the
work permit) we do not arrange this and the application
must be processed
in Bonn in October of the previous
year, with only a small chance of
the student being
successful. Students from
USA, Canada, New Zealand
and South Africa should
a second passport, either
French, British or German.
should be sent not later than eight weeks before arrival, the
earlier the better. We guarantee help should problems arise
that cannot be otherwise solved. The student must on no account
leave the work-placement without having called the Regensburg
office. Should it be necessary to change the placement, this will
be done free of charge.
The Student will be paid Euro 51,- a week with all his/her keep
and will be expected to work thirty-six hours a week with one
day free. The work is light and mainly with the German tourist
children and animals.
The student is treated as a member of the family and not as a
servant. Some families are willing to cover the cost of the
German lessons if this is really necessary - however not during
the summer months when the Adult Education schools are closed,
and generally only when the student stays for six months. The
student should not book for less than six weeks and preferably
three to six months or longer.
We cannot accept students on unemployment support.
The booking fee is Euro 180.- (in 2010; Euro 200.- from
January 2011 on), independently from the duration of the stay.
With your confirmation of placement you will receive an invoice,
payable 4 weeks prior to arrival. The booking fee is payable to:
Terre des Langues, Pflanzenmayerstr. 16, 93049 Regensburg, Germany.
Fees and payment arrangements may differ for bookings with the
partners in Finnland and Spain.
