In order to obtain the most benefits   from our Integrated Language Learning , we urge you to stay with local families selected by our division  for their willingness to welcome students into their homes.

With such families, you will be provided with a clean, private room and three delightful home-cooked meals daily. Safe water for drinking, warm water for bathing, clean sheets and bath towels will also be provided. Any special dietary needs–including vegetarian diets–will be met. This is an excellent opportunity to practice Spanish and experience the local culture firsthand. All host families are experienced in providing an invaluable source of both city orientation and conversation for students as well as an insiders view of customs and traditions.

Information about your family including name, address, and telephone number will be available prior to your departure (approximately one week prior). We recommend you bring a small gift which is representative of your country or  province  for your host family to enjoy.

Our housing personnel maintains an extensive list of carefully selected host families, and choose the host family that will be the best match for each student—not only in physical accommodations, but also taking into consideration a student’s interests and preferences. We know what students want from a homestay experience, and can match students with the ideal host family arrangement.
