Amity Interns are an invaluable asset to our Schools. They not only help add an extra teacher and bring more native language skills to the classrooms, but also enhance our students’ cultural knowledge and sensitivity. Hosting an intern will bring the linguistic and cultural learning experience to your whole family, as well as build an international friendship.
The Reimer family hosted Abdou for 8 months in 2011, an intern from Bordeaux France. Check out TFS student Ella’s impressive French conversation with Abdou on the Reimer family’s YouTube channel EllaSpeaksFrench. Thank you for sharing your experiences Reimer family!
Intern Host Families provide a private room, meals, occasional transportation and integration into the family and the St. Louis community. If you are interested in becoming a Host Family, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
