EC San Diego Host of the Month: Leanne Buck!

  Host of the Month: Leanne Buck Leanne: “Just like every student is different, every host family is different, and there is a match for everyone”.   Today’s Blog Spotlight is on EC San Diego’s Host of the month, Leanne Buck! Here we will outline the philosophies and experiences of our different, local San Diego host families, who all bring something special to the table. We at EC hope that this post will provide inspiration and advice to other host families so that we can continue to develop a support system together. We also hope that this post will help new ESL students looking to find their San Diego home while attending EC, the best English language school in San Diego! From EC San Diego Host Mom Leanne: “When I think about why I work with exchange students from EC, my first thought is ‘because it makes me happy’! I believe that one of my purposes in life is to help guide each and every international student in the hopes of enlightening their lives. I take pride in providing the best home stay accommodation for English language students in San Diego. “I am so thankful for what my EC San Diego students have brought to my family! “For example, my students always engage in conversations about the trips they want to take while they are here (I love to travel). They also share the trips that they have taken while in San Diego, showing me what they have bought at the nearby Outlet stores (I stay up on the new fashion), the photos they took while out to dinner at a Las Vegas casino (they always say “we eat all we can!”), and their favorite parts of visiting the Rock Church with me and my family! “A little about me: I love to walk around the Bay for 5 miles in … Read more

Be A Part of our San Diego Home Stay Program!!

Become a Home Stay provider with EC San Diego! We at EC San Diego love our students, and are always looking for local families to provide them with a “home away from home” here in San Diego!! Some basic information about EC & our Home Stay Program:  EC English Language Centers is committed to teaching English to international students – and to providing them with the type of full immersion English experience that is quintessential to ESL learning. A large part of our full immersion commitment is working with local Host Families, who provide our students with the experience of living with an American family, while they also partake in part or full-time English classes here at school. EC is committed to ensuring that our students’ stay here in San Diego is memorable. Alongside our high quality General English courses, we also provide a friendly Center atmosphere and impeccable student services. Our San Diego Home Stay Program is an integral part of this service.  We strive to ensure that our students will not only take home with them fond memories of a friendly school and improved use of the English language, but also fond memories of their “home away from home” and their new American friends. Students choose to stay in an American home stay while studying at EC San Diego in order to have the opportunity to practice English outside of class and to see first-hand how American families live. We hope that hosting an international student will prove to be an exciting and rewarding experience for you, your family, and your students! If you are interested in hosting an international student in your home, please contact our Home Stay Coordinator Brittany Goodwell at (858) 456-1212 ext. 208, or via email at brittanygoodwell@ecenglish.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
