What better way to learn a language but to fully submerge yourself into the learning process by being part of a British family, developing your conversational skills and learning about British culture at the same time!
Full immersion in an English family life has many key benefits. Students stay in
a secure family environment which is welcoming and friendly, making the students
feel at ease, allowing them to feel comfortable when communicating in English.
Other benefits to homestays are: –
• Full exposure to the English Language and English culture.
• Being able to participate in English family activities.
• Not being able to communicate in their own language will encourage and
• Full immersion will improve vocabulary, grammar and fluency in
• Having a sense of independence – allowing the individual to grow both
socially and personally away from home influences.
• Try new activities and visit new places – encouraging a sense of
appreciation for culture and heritage.
• After a short time, the student will automatically start to think in English.
During the homestay students will be involved
with various activities to stimulate their learning and
build confidence. Students will be able to integrate with the family’s day to day activities and will hopefully develop lifelong friendships.

develop vocabulary based on ordering food and drink. They will be able to pay with English money and
write a review on their experience.
Eating out will help students learn about food and will allow them to experience English cuisine.
