Housing Options

Homestay - Full Board

One of the best ways to both speed 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 Program 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 speak only 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 Center (an average of 45-65 minutes by public transportation)**.

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 transportation to come to school. For more information regarding Vancouver's Public Transportation, visit www.translink.ca.
