Homestay Accommodation

30 minutes from school on public transport
Minimum age — 16
Half board

Our homestay families reflect the diversity of life in the United States. They include young, senior and single parent families and couples with and without children. American hosts live in houses, apartment complexes or townhomes and have varying ethnic backgrounds, diverse interests and different lifestyles.

Living in a homestay will allow you to practice your English in a real-life setting. It is important to remember that you are both part of the family and a guest at the same time. You may have to help with household chores, keep your bedroom tidy and make your bed each morning. Make sure

that you always ask for permission to bring friends around and let your family know if you will not be at home for dinner or will be going away for the weekend! We want you to be comfortable with your family, but we cannot promise a family of specific age, gender, or ethnicity. Every family is different and will have their individual lifestyles. Please make sure you

understand your house rules upon arrival.

Plan to arrive at your accommodation between 2:00 pm and 10:00 pm on the Saturday or Sunday prior to your course start date.

Breakfast: Breakfast is usually a light meal consisting of cereal, toast or fruit, frequently with juice or coffee. Often these foods will be made available to you and you will prepare your own morning meal.

Lunch: You will be responsible for purchasing your own lunch at a nearby restaurant or from a local store. A refrigerator and a microwave may be available for you to use at school.

Dinner: Dinner may be a shared meal in the evening, or occasionally you may prepare your own meal with food supplied by your host.

Most families have either wireless or DSL Internet in their home. However, you should plan to bring your own laptop and/or other mobile device since most families will not have a computer for you to share.
