Extreme language exchange 24 Feb 2010
Adopting a child from abroad for 6 months

School children taking part in language exchanges is nothing new, but one family from Cambridgeshire are taking part in an altogether more extreme exchange. For the last six months Bob and Katy Salmon have adopted a nine year old French boy named Mayeul. Now it is the turn of their own nine-year old son Jonathan to go and live with Mayeul’s family in Paris. Katy, Jonathan and Mayeul join Jenni to talk about the experience. They are joined by Katherine Pinault  from En Famille International which organises extreme exchange trips.
