LIVING WITH A HOMESTAY HOST PROVIDER
Staying with a homestay is our recommended type of accommodation as it gives you the opportunity to practice English outside the classroom. Homestay is also the ideal type of accommodation if you want contact with local people, learn about the local culture, value for money and a friendly experience, All of our hosts live no more than one bus journey from the school.
Our Welfare and Accommodation Officer organises homestay accommodation. Your homestay experience may be with a family, a single person or a couple depending on your preference. You will be placed with a suitable host depending on your personal requirements (such as diet) and package chosen.
All of our hosts speak English and will engage and encourage you to practise the language. You may also find that some of our hosts may speak other languages such as French or Spanish. Your host will ensure that your stay is comfortable and memorable experience.
You really will feel as if you are at home away from home.
