Why You Should Stay in a Homestay

Homestay accommodation offers great advantages to language students and other travellers – allow us to explain why…

Host Family

An Authentic Experience

Staying with a host family will give you a genuine insight into your destination. They will be able to teach you much more about their home country and culture than a guide book ever could! They can suggest things to do and places of interest that only a local would know about. Living with your hosts will give you a deeply cultural experience that you would never have in a hostel or hotel.


Good Value

Select English’s host families open up their homes to you for a great price, including two meals per day and a weekly laundry service. Being able to relax and spend time with your hosts in their home is not only more enjoyable than staying in a hotel or renting an apartment, it’s also cheaper!


Improve Your Language Skills

The only way to truly master a second language is through complete immersion, and staying in a homestay enables you to practice your language skills in a real-life environment.  Our homestay hosts are experienced in housing students from all over the world and will be delighted to speak English with you and help you to learn at home.


Make Friends

Homestays are a great option for solo travellers, such as language students. When you arrive in a new place, it can be difficult to meet new people. Host families are your ready-made friends who can give you a personal experience, introduce you to other people and help you to create happy memories of your travels.
