Host family students look forward to eating dinner in the evenings with their host families, celebrating holidays and other traditions with them, and having the opportunity to practice their English with them every day. Host families assist students in finding their way to the Center on the first day, and teach them how to use the bus system, as needed. Students who choose to live with host families are able to learn more about American culture than those who live on their own.
