Staying with a host family is designed to allow students to learn the language of the country of choice through total immersion in a new environment. It also allows students to learn about other cultures while having a fun experience and often making long-lasting friendships with the host family.
The focus of this programme is on the student participating in daily family life and activities. Students will be placed with a family who have a child of the same gender and similar age (+/- 2 years). Each and every family is carefully selected, checked and approved.
