Become a student host: It's rewarding!

Become a Homestay Host

If you have an empty bedroom and would like to earn extra income by giving one of our international students a home, we would love to hear from you. Some of our hosts have been with us for many years and have formed lasting bonds with our students. We recently heard from a host who is travelling to South America this year for a former student's wedding!

Opening your home to become a host to one of our international students is a rewarding, hospitable and educational experience for all the family. By hosting one of our language students, you will make new friends, earn income and share in the riches of different cultures.

Are you interested in experiencing diverse cultures, making lifelong connections, and earning extra income right from the comfort of your own home? Look no further! Become a host for international students today!
