Host family at ChristmasFamily Homestays:

In order to obtain the most benefits from our Integrated Language Learning Programs, we urge you to stay with local families selected by our institute for their willingness to welcome students into their homes.

With such families, you will be provided with a clean, private room and three delightful home-cooked meals daily. Safe water for drinking, warm water for bathing, clean sheets and bath towels will also be provided. Any special dietary needs--including vegetarian diets--will be met. This is an excellent opportunity to practice Spanish and experience the local culture firsthand. All host families are experienced in providing an invaluable source of both city orientation and conversation for students as well as an insiders view of customs and traditions.

Family homestays in MexicoInformation about your family including name, address, and telephone number will be available prior to your departure (approximately one week prior). We recommend you bring a small gift which is representative of your country or state for your host family to enjoy.

Family homestays in MexicoOur housing personnel maintains an extensive list of carefully selected host families, and choose the host family that will be the best match for each student—not only in physical accommodations, but also taking into consideration a student’s interests and preferences. We know what students want from a homestay experience, and can match students with the ideal host family arrangement.

Family homestays in MexicoSome students are apprehensive about living with a host family if they have never done so before.  Our testimonial video is great for those students.  Some apprehensions students have is that they will have limited privacy or that they won’t be able to come and go as they wish.  These worries need not keep someone from taking advantage of our homestay program.  The rooms in host families’ homes are more comfortable and private then a hotel room—some even have their own private balcony or study room in addition to their bedroom.  If you like, you can opt to upgrade to private-plus accommodations and have your own private bathroom as well—like a hotel room.  Host families provide students with a key to their home—just so the student can come and go as he/she wishes.  Host families will be able to provide you with directions and advice about where to go and what to do.  Their only request is that you notify them if you will miss a meal.
