A home away from home

Living with a local host family is the perfect way to experience family life in your new country first-hand, and gain a deeper understanding of British or American culture. You will also have the opportunity to practice your English with your new host family outside of class.

Our homestays are all carefully selected and regularly inspected by our experienced Accommodation Officers. We have strong, long-term relationships with many local hosts including working families, couples, single people and retired people. All our hosts offer a warm welcome and comfortable accommodation.
