Why should you choose to stay in homestay accommodation? Thankfully, we can help you answer that question!
An authentic experience
Staying with a host family is an experience that will allow you to have an insight in to the town/city/ country you are staying in. They will be able to teach you about their home country and culture. Additionally, they can suggest things to do and places to see from a local’s perspectives.
Homestay provides a more authentic cultural experience. That is, by living with locals rather than other travelling students you have an opportunity to experience the realities of daily life. Effectively, you will experience local food and get inside information to different events and places to go to. Your host family members can often provide you with tips and advice on your new town/city.
Good value for money
Staying in home stay is much cheaper than staying in a hotel or renting an apartment. Also, being able to relax and spend time with your hosts in their home is much more enjoyable!
Improve you language skills
One of the best ways to improve your language skills is to communicate and take part in the new language. Therefore, staying in a homestay allows you to practise your language skills in a real life environment. Our homestay hosts are experienced in having students from all around the world and will be happy to communicate with you.
Eating home cooked food
When you stay in a homestay you will have breakfast with your host family, and lunch and dinner if you want to! The best thing about this is that you will get to experience new and exciting food while practising you language skills and learning new things from them!
Moving to a new city
Moving to a new city can be a scary experience. Especially when you first arrive and you don’t know the city very well. In a homestay you will meet local people. Being in their home straight away will quickly help you feel more comfortable, safe and happy.
Perfect for solo travellers
When you arrive in a new place it can be difficult to meet to new people. It can be even harder if you are travelling alone. However, if you stay in a host family you have already made friends who can give assistance. Additionally, they can introduce you to other people and help you create happy travel memories.
Memories you’ll never forget
A home stay is a real home away from home. When you stay in a hotel it is easy to forget about the staff, your room or the experience. However, when you stay in homestay accommodation you meet real, genuine people. By getting to know them you will make memories you couldn’t get from any other kind of accommodation!
