What is the Demi Pair program? 

The Demi Pair program combines Intensive English classes (General English, Academic English, Business English, IELTS and Cambridge preparation) whilst at the same time helping out an Australian family with childcare and light housework assistance. In exchange for those services, the student will receive accommodation, meals and a weekly living allowance (around AU$ 120 per week).

Students will attend daily Intensive English classes at ACCESS and follow a regular timetable from Monday to Friday (8:30 am – 12:50 pm or 9:40 am – 2:30 pm). Students may start their English course any Monday during the year. Students will then return to their Demi Pair families to look after the children and perform housekeeping duties (approximately 20 hours per week). Contact Us to find out more!

 Access Language Centre & Sydney College of English offer students the opportunity to take study breaks during their course, allowing students to practice English outside of school, travel, work & discover Australia! Students with a course longer than 12 weeks may be eligible for a study break. A ratio of one week of study break is permitted for every 4 weeks of study, based on the total number of weeks enrolled for.
