For many students, one of the best parts of learning English abroad is the opportunity to live with a local family. This provides a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in the language and culture and to gain a better understanding of the people. Homestay accommodation is available in Manhattan for students who want to learn English at EC New York.
Students will have their own single room and will be able to experience first-hand what it is like to live in one of the world's most vibrant and exciting cities.
Homestays are a great way to meet new people and to learn more about the culture and way of life in New York City.
If you are interested in learning English in a truly unique and authentic way, then homestay accommodation in Manhattan may be right for you.
Rooms are sufficiently spacious with a source of natural light, a comfortable bed and a reasonable supply of blankets, sheets, bath towels and pillows. There will be storage facilities with drawers and closets with adequate hanging space. The student will have a desk or table for private study, a reading lamp, adequate power outlets, a mirror, and a waste paper basket.
Breakfast varies from one family to another. Host families are encouraged to offer you whatever is typical for their home. They may prepare a hearty breakfast with eggs, toast, bacon, fruit, coffee or tea, but most will offer something simple like toast or cereal and coffee.
Just as there is no typical New Yorker, there is also no typical home in New York. We have host families who were born and raised in New York and others who moved to New York from different states or countries. All of the hosts love sharing their home with our international students.
