Living with a host family provides a valuable opportunity to practice and improve your English outside the classroom. This allows you to maximise your learning in a natural setting, as well as experience the British way of life.

Your host family

We believe that it is important to find the right host family for you, and we ensure that no other student who speaks the same language is staying in the same home.

We will let you know details about your host family no later than 1 week before the start of your course. All host families are thoroughly inspected and their credentials checked. We visit each host family to ensure that the highest standards are maintained, and we keep in close contact with the family during your stay.
