Host family
In order to discover the English lifestlye and to practise your English in daily life situations, host family accommodation is the best solution. The host families are carefully selected and offer you individual supervision. You'll stay in bedrooms to be shared with other students (if possible, of different nationalities) and you'll benefit from full board. In the morning, breakfast will be served to you; at lunchtime, you'll receive a packed lunch, and in the evening, a hot meal. Host families live up to 40 minutes away on foot or by public transport.

Please note that this type of accommodation is best suited for independent students who will be able to arrive to school on their own by using public transport.

In accordance with British law, students ages 16 and under cannot stay more than 27 nights with a host family unless the family is accredited. Contact us to check the availability of accredited host families before booking a course of 4 weeks or more.

It is important to budget GBP 19 per week for public transport costs.

Our partner school prepares a complete activities programme each week with games and sports. This programme begins as soon as you arrive with a visit of the town planned for the first Monday. Also on the agenda of your stay: visit to the coastal town of Brixham, Paignton Zoo, the third largest zoo in England, or indeed Kents Cavern. The evenings will be spent with your host families, in the company of your hosts. A festival of activities which will allow you to discover this magnificent region of England!
