Housing Options


Some ELS students report that living with an English-speaking host family has helped them learn English – as well as Australian customs and culture – faster and more naturally. We carefully screen and select our homestay families to ensure that you will be comfortable, safe, and at-home while you learn English. When staying with a host family, you will have a private, fully-furnished room, breakfast and dinner Monday to Friday, and all meals on weekends.
