Host family


Staying with a host family during your English course is full of perks. In addition to constantly practising the language at meal times and during casual conversation with your family, you’ll be able to fully immerse yourself in Welsh culture and experience life like a local! You’ll have your own private room (doubles available for students travelling together), and enjoy half board plus free Wi-Fi, bed linens and towels. Most host families live about 20-45 minutes from the language school by public transport.

Any student under 18 years of age must book a return airport transfer and full-board homestay accommodation.
