Families FAQ

What is AcTIF?

AcTIF is a non-profit organization. It connects international students with French host families in order to promote linguistic and cultural immersion of those students.

Who are the HOST FAMILIES?    

These are families who have requested to join the Association AcTIF. They were selected because:

• They have a fairly large family home, with at least one bedroom booked for students, and providing hygiene and optimum comfort;
• they have unreservedly adopted constraints and quality requirements set out in our Home Charter, which defines the basic principles of quality accommodation, mutual tolerance, mutual respect governing stays of residents in host family through AcTIF.

The family structure is not an essential element in our selection. Single women, couples without children and large families can host. The minimum age is usually 25 years, with no upper limit.
Motivation to meet other cultures and the desire to establish a tolerant and respectful reception are fundamental.

How to become a host family?

You contact the association and then you complete the hospitality form. 

AcTIF will contact you to arrange an appointment to meet you and visit your house and the rooms available for the students. 

AcTIF can also answer your questions during the interview.

Who will I host?  

AcTIF receives foreigners of all nationalities, without age limit.

Our guests are often students coming to follow a program in a university, high school or language school.

AcTIF also receives trainees in professional courses.

There may be individual or group application.

What type of accommodation do you offer?

AcTIF answers to individual or group requests (see: they trust us)

Generally, applications are for adults. Sometimes group applications can be for youth persons (between 16 and 18 years) 

AcTIF does not place minors in individual home. 

There are two types of accommodation: single room or double room. 

  • The single room is a room to host exclusive hosted. 
  • The double bedroom is a double room shared by two hosts (usually the same group). 

AcTIF offers several options for individual intakes (see our rates): 

  • Bedroom + breakfast 
  • Bedroom + breakfast + 3 meals /week 
  • Bedroom + breakfast + 5 meals /week 
  • Bedroom + half board 

Sometimes, to respond to the request of organizations, we have the following formula: half board host during the week and full board during the weekend.

Our charter states that the host family informs the association of the presence of other guests at a host proposal so that students / trainees of the same mother tongue do not live together.

If you have other questions, do not hesitate to contact us. For group requests, contact us.

Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance should I contact you to book a host family?

We advise you to do it as soon as possible: as soon as your project becomes concrete, at the time of registration in a Toulouse University for example. This way, the family we will select for you will best match your wishes (that you have shared in your registration form).

How do I pay?

The payment occurs in two steps: first a deposit of 50 € when you book a host family. Then, once you’re in Toulouse, you will pay each month to the association AcTIF the hospitality and monitoring fees. Our rates are available here.

What if I do not get along well with the host family?

In case of disagreement with the family, AcTIF will allow you to change of host family, with no additional cost (excluding travel). In this case, AcTIF will ask you to notify it as soon as possible.

Will I have the keys of the house / apartment?

Of course! You are free to come and go! Just remember to be discreet when you come home late or very late...! Be very careful not to lose your keys: changing a lock is very expensive and will be at your expense.

Is it possible to extend my stay in a host family? 

You can extend your stay in the family you already live with (if the family can host you) or in a new family selected by AcTIF.

When will you give me my address?

Upon receipt of your application (registration form + payment of the fees) we will send you the details of your future host family, address, photos, description...

I am afraid to be lost; it is my first trip to Toulouse!

Don’t worry! We will do everything to facilitate your arrival. At your request, we will pick you up at the airport and take you to your host family (see price list). You will have all the important information on the neighborhood in which you will live! Families are used to host and will help you with pleasure. We try to accommodate you near your university (maximum 40 minutes).

I chose the formula bedroom and breakfast, can I prepare my meals?

With this package, you do not take the evening meal at home. You can sometimes, with the agreement of the family, quickly prepare a snack. Meals not taken with the family are taken outside. Be careful: it is forbidden to store food in the room. In the interest of the relationship with the family and learning the language, we suggest you take a few meals/week with the family.

I chose the half-board formula, how do I organize myself? 

Each family will tell you their habits (time schedule, menu ...). You should share yours as well! Remember to always tell the family if you decide not to take an evening meal. Similarly, if the members of the family cannot be present on some nights, they must prepare in advance a meal for you.

I found another solution for my accommodation. 

You must tell your family at least 15 days before your departure and inform AcTIF of your new address. Reimbursement will not be automatic and will be considered on a case by case basis.

Why take out liability insurance? 

This insurance is mandatory. It is different from a medical insurance. It covers all accidents that may occur during your stay in the family (serious damage, flood, fire, breakage...).

Do you have further questions?

Please, do not hesitate to contact us by mail or phone.
