No Deposit

We do NOT require a deposit from you because you will be part of a Host Family and not just renting a room. Of course, you should keep your room clean and be responsible if you break anything. But you will feel more comfortable because we provide a Host Family, not just an apartment room.


Your Host Family will be happy to pick you up at the nearest airport or bus station. We want you to feel safe as soon as you arrive at your destination. We are a “homestay company” and not an apartment locator.

Meals Included

We believe it is important for homestay to include meals. This provides an excellent opportunity to practice English conversation and feel like you are a member of the family. Therefore, our homestay includes meals.We do NOT have an option for homestay without meals,

become a host

We are always looking for warm and caring host families,
whose primary language is English, and who have extra room for an adult student.


Our students request homestays because they want to learn American culture and practice their English in the world's greatest classroom, your home.

You will not only give a student the chance to experience daily American life, but you will also provide yourself and your family with an opportunity to learn about another culture without having to leave your home.

Host families are compensated for every student they host.


Host families are responsible for providing:

  • A safe and comfortable environment
  • A private furnished bedroom with desk and lamp
  • Breakfast (self-served) and dinner, 7 days a week
  • Airport pickup/drop-off
  • Collection of homestay fees
  • Willingness to include student in family activities
