Homestay

40 minutes from school on public transport
Minimum age — 16
Breakfast only/half board

In a homestay you will live with local English speakers, and experience an authentic lifestyle. You will live as your hosts live, eat what they eat and spend time at home together. Many students enjoy the homecooked food and extra feeling of security in a homestay. Staying with local people means you will practise your English with native speakers at home in a very natural way.

Learn more about the local culture and be exposed to a rich variety of cultural learning opportunities. Experience day-to-day family life: activities, holiday celebrations and local cuisine. Get personal care and attention in a caring, comfortable, home environment. Staying in a home means you always have someone there to support you. Enjoy a relaxing atmosphere at home. Living with your host will give you stability, plus a quiet and peaceful environment for relaxation and study.

Homestaying is the perfect way to experience home-away-from-home. You will enjoy all the comforts of home life: security, comfort and home cooked food, plus, you will have a unique cultural experience (it's a great way to directly learn about British culture). In addition, you will be able to use your English in a natural environment outside of the classroom.

The homestay consists of mixed gender accommodation with single or twin room (if you book with a friend). Each room is furnished with a bed, desk/table, chest of drawers or a wardrobe, mirror and a waste paper basket. Some rooms have TVs.

Additionally, students will have access to common areas such as the lounge, kitchen and dining room. It is important that rooms and living areas are kept neat and tidy. Students also have access to a shared bathroom.

Bed linen and towels are provided by the homestay provider. Our homestay provider will offer one wash per week - anything extra will be at the homestay's discretion.

Internet access is available and telephone access is restricted to incoming calls only.

Homestays are arranged via our accommodation partner, Hosts International, who are registered with the British Council.

A variety of food is provided. Homestay providers may adjust the type of food offered when taking into consideration religious beliefs. It is important to mention this at the time of your booking. Vegetarians, or people with food allergies should specify their eating options upon booking so this can be shared with their host prior to arrival.

Breakfast varies from one homestay to another. It is usually self-service and includes bread, coffee and cereal. Hosts are encouraged to offer students whatever is typical for their home.

You will eat whatever the hosts eat. Dinners are usually quite early in Britain but hosts will inform you of the time when they eat.

Distance to school: 20 - 50 minute bus

The best time of my life.

It’s not like learning Math or Chemistry, it’s much better than that... It’s getting in touch with so many different countries: Russia, France, South Korea, Colombia, Argentina, Switzerland, Sweden, Germany, Japan, Holland, England, Italy, Thailand, Belgium, India, Australia, Turkey, China, Spain, Palestine and even Brazil…Building friendships that overcome the distance and finding yourself sharing your life with someone you met a week ago who you know better than your old friends. I loved getting lunch at the Saint Nicholas Market, going to pubs, shopping, having parties in the common room, getting lost everywhere, being hosted by two wonderful families who made me feel like a part of their family.

​EC gave me the best time of my life, building up some memories that will never be forgotten, living in my heart forever and always. Thank you guys for everything.
