Homestay is a safe and convenient place for a student to live in while studying at our college. The student lives with a host family and experiences a new culture and way of life as a member of the family. Students can get their own private room (sometimes a shared room) and meals are usually included—no need to cook! Many families also provide a desk and quiet place to study. Further, a homestay is an excellent opportunity for International students to practice English outside of school. Homestay families will help students adjust to their new life. Visitors often experience exciting new holidays and family events that they’ve never seen before. Sometimes, families will invite their guests to participate in recreational activities and sports events. The student is often treated as a member of the family, eating meals with them and being part of family conversations.
