Students in homestays have a very rewarding experience. They can learn English faster, as they have guaranteed practice every day. They also learn a lot about American lifestyles and American culture, especially regarding our holidays and festival celebrations. Our hosts help the student take public transportation to the Center on the first day. Our hosts look forward to meaningful conversations with the students. Many students remain friends with the families long after the homestay has ended.
The student always has a private bedroom with linens provided, and they are welcome to use the kitchen. For bathrooms, in some homes it is a shared bathroom and in some homes it might be a private bathroom.
14 meals per week. Meals vary with each Homestay host. Typically, this will be a continental breakfast such as milk & cereal, or toast & juice, or coffee and donuts. Dinner will usually be a home-cooked hot meal which the host eats together with the student.
