Living in a homestay is a wonderful experience. This unique option lets you stay in a local home and discover a different lifestyle and culture. Practise your language skills in a natural setting, while enjoying all the comforts and pleasures of a warm, welcoming home. Enjoy the unique opportunity to share the day to day life of your homestay providers, as well as learning about the diversity of the local culture. EC staff members are available at all times to help students adjust to life in a new environment, and to serve as a liaison between them and their homestay provider. Homestays are arranged directly by EC or by our accommodation partners.
