Homestay

A great option if learning about the British way of life and British culture are important to you.

You will have your own room and receive breakfast and dinner each day. By living with a friendly and welcoming homestay provider (host), you will have daily contact with fluent English speakers. This will provide you with the opportunity to:

  • Experience the British way of life first hand.

  • Learn more about British culture.

  • Practise your speaking skills outside the classroom with your host.
