Staying with a local family is both exciting and rewarding. Host families provide the best insight into how British families live their day-to-day lives. This interaction with a family will help you communicate better, faster and allow you to pick up words and nuances used in daily situations. There is no typical homestay in Cambridge. Some homes are single standing homes; others can be apartments or townhouses. Cambridge is a very multi-cultural city and a lot of people are originally from different countries, so families may have different backgrounds. Living with a family in Cambridge will give you a great view of all the different cultures and ethnicities that Cambridge has to offer.
Each room is furnished with a bed and a closet to store your personal belongings and clothes. If there is not a desk in your room, the host family will provide you with a quiet place to study. It is important that rooms and living areas are kept neat and tidy. You will also have access to a shared bathroom. Private bathrooms are also an option, upon request and availability.
Bed linen and towels are provided by the host family. The host family will be happy to launder the sheets and towels once a week. You are responsible for doing your own personal laundry. You will be allowed to have one free wash per week. It is very common for families to have a designated laundry day. Internet access is available upon request (and if requested, will be free of charge). Telephone access is dependent on the host family.
