Housing options

Homestay – full board

One of the best ways to speed up the progress of learning English and gain a first-hand understanding of the people of Canada is to live with a Canadian host family while studying at ELS Language Centers. The Homestay programme is an inexpensive accommodation choice designed to give students an opportunity to learn about life in Canada by living with a Canadian family. Canadian hosts are sensitive to the cultural differences facing students upon arrival. It is their job to help the students adjust to the lifestyle, become familiar with the city and provide support to the students. All homestay families only speak English in the home and high-speed Internet access is guaranteed. Each student will have a private room* in a home located within a reasonable distance from the centre (an average of 45-65 minutes by public transport)**.

There is a Full Board meal plan (3 meals per day) at all ELS/Vancouver homestays. Host family students are responsible for their personal transportation. Most students use public transport to come to school. For more information regarding Vancouver's public transport, visit www.translink.ca. 

*Students may request their own private bathroom for an additional charge of $150 per 4-week session. 

**Students may request a homestay that is located closer to the school for an additional charge of $50 per 4-week session.
