Accommodations

    Homestay

    From : 16 years
    Time in transit : 45 - 65 min by public transport
    Homestays are the perfect way to communicate in English with native English speakers. This is ideal if you desire support and wish to build upon your English speaking confidence while enjoying all the comforts of home life and a cultural experience.

    Each homestay bedroom consists of a bed, drawer and closet. Some rooms have a TV and other amenities. Some hosts have washing machines and dryers available for students and some do not.

    Homestay familes have their own set of rules which will be explained to you when you arrive. Some host families have curfews as well as a time limit for showers. Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from school.

    Every meal is fresh and prepared daily. A variety of food is provided each one packed with nutritional value. Host families make an effort to adjust the type of food offered to the tastes of the students and take religious beliefs into consideration when preparing meals. Vegetarians or people with food allergies should be specified upon booking.

    Breakfast varies from family to family. It is usually self-service and includes bread, coffee, cereal. Hosts offer whatever food is typical for their home. If you book half board you will eat whatever the family eats. If the host family is dining out, you will accompany them as a guest.

    Dinners are usually quite early in America but families will inform you of the time when they eat. Not all families sit down and have dinner together every night. Some hosts will allow you to use their kitchens to cook on their own, but this varies from family to family.
