Opportunity available starting September/October 2015

Would you like to strengthen your English language skills in a full immersion situation?
Do you have a passion for education and creativity?
Do you thoroughly enjoy spending your time with young children?
Or, are you a native English speaker who would like to experience Australasian culture through the eyes of a child?

We are a young family who often host young women between that ages of 18 and 25 that are wanting to experience life in Australia.
As native New Zealanders living in Queensland Australia, you are sure to get the full Australasian experience during your stay with us.

We are currently looking for a demi-pair to replace our beautiful French girl, who sadly will be leaving us around October 2015.

To be a successful applicant for this position, you must be able to provide a police check, 2 character references from family or friends, and 2 references of previous work history.
You must be eligible to apply for the Working Holiday Visa (subclass 417 or 462) or a similar visa that permits you to work and live in Australia for at least 6 months.
Professional work experience with children is not necessary, but any experience in being a part of a social family is preferred.
You must be able to stay with us for at least 6 months, preferably longer.

Contact me on polyglotprose@outlook.com to apply.


Set sail! Voyage across the seas of the Aspiring Polyglot with me

Ahoy there fellow linguists!

My name is Polly, and I am on an epic quest.

The quest to acquire a new language.

Join me on my quest, as we discover the hows and whys of language acquisition together. This is a space for me to share my research and experiences on the road to multilingualism.

A place to post reports, articles and anecdotes.

The aim of this blog is to explore what it means to obtain a new language, how to obtain it, how to keep it, through my own research and experience.

This is also a place for me to practice the language I am currently working on. If you would like to check out how I am progressing with my current language immersion, see all posts titled French Acquisition (yes, that is an intentional not so politically-correct pun).
