Dear Association of French Teachers in Victoria Inc.

In June/July 2011 Student Exchange Australia New Zealand will welcome a new group of French exchange students to Australia. Our new arrivals will live with a host family and attend a local school for 2-10 months.

As we plan for their arrival, we are keen to hear from suitable families who might be interested to host a student. Host families come in all shapes and sizes, backgrounds and ages. To this end, we would be grateful if you would place a notice in your newsletter/bulletin or mention it on your website. Please note that
