The best way to gain fluency in a language is to speak it! In place of classroom instruction we encourage students to practice English with their American family and friends throughout the month in everyday life.
While you are staying with your American family, our coordinators provide fun activities such as water activities, hiking, shopping, a big city visit, sports, movie night, … For many students the most exciting thing is to learn English while they are having a lot of fun living the American life!
To make sure your experience is the best it can be, local people from different ages join you in activities throughout the month. It is a great opportunity to mix with American people and become friends for life.
We place students with families we know and trust. They are interested in getting to know you and your culture and their desire is that you will feel a part of their family. You get to go where they go, do what they do and eventually speak how they speak!
