Brighton - Homestay
Homestaying is the perfect way to experience a home away from home. You will enjoy all the comforts of home life: security, comfort and home cooked food, plus, you will benefit from a unique cultural experience. In addition, you will be able to use your English in a natural environment outside of the classroom.
Brighton homestay consists of mixed gender twin and single room accommodation. If you choose twin room accommodation. then expect to be placed with a student of a different nationality but you can also choose to share with a friend. Each room will provide you with storage space for clothes, a chair and desk (if not in the bedroom, you will be able to use a designated area for studying) as well as good lighting, mirror, waste paper bin. Bed linen and towels are provided by the host family and they will also offer you one clothes wash per week. Anything extra is at the discretion of the host family. Drying and ironing facilities will also be made available to you.
Whilst staying in a host family you will have access to communal rooms such as the lounge, dining area and kitchen. Most students will not be able to use the cooking facilities and each family will advise the student on what a student has access to in the kitchen. Bathrooms will be shared with the host family.
You can choose between half board and bed and breakfast. If you choose half board, then you can expect to have breakfast and evening meals with the host family from Monday to Sunday. Breakfast can vary from one homestay to another and is usually provided on a self-service basis and will include cereals, toast, coffee and tea. Evening meals for most of the time will be with the host family and students will eat what the family eats.
If you request bed and breakfast, your host family will provide breakfast only and you will at most be able to use the kettle and microwave in the kitchen and should not expect to be able to use the cooking facilities.
Some of you may have allergies to food or prefer a vegetarian diet, or in some cases simply not like a particular food. It is important that this information is shared and made available on the booking form, so that the best host family match can be found for you.
