Arizona's Premier Homestay
Benefits of Homestay
Our hosts will welcome you into their home, and before long you will feel like a member of their family. This is a great way to learn about local cultures with the help of a local guide, and you will find that your language skills improve greatly through this immersive experience. You will have your own private room, including utilities and internet. Extra services include: airport pickup and drop-off, local welcoming services, and meal plans.
We carefully screen each host family prior to placing them in our host family network. Each host family has been interviewed, screened, vetted, and background checked to ensure the highest quality standards. Living with a host family will help you adjust to life in America.
We base our business model on input from host families as well as student experiences.
Our students and scholars come from all over the world to study in many areas in Arizona. They are adults (usually at least 18 years old). Some stay a month and some stay several years. Most are students of English as a Second Language; some are visiting professors; some are traditional undergraduates; some are graduate students. All find their homestay a great place to live, practice English, make American friendships, and study as needed.
Homestay guests are expected to live with their hosts as “family members.” As such, guests will enjoy regular conversation in English and may be invited to participate in a variety of family traditions, activities, and outings. Guests will be expected to keep their bedrooms and bathrooms clean and help with shared tasks like cleaning up after a family meal.
Living in a homestay is the very best way for international students to experience American culture in the safety and comfort of a home while having many opportunities to practice English conversation.
