students with host family

Families with or without children, as well as responsible single adults can host students. Hosts provide a warm and caring environment in which the student becomes an active member of the household where they can experience British culture and improve their English.

The experience for both the host and students can be enriching and memorable. Both students and hosts are selected with great care and students are expected to abide by the customs and reasonable expectations of their host.

As a host, you:

  • Welcome a student into your home.
  • Provide an individual bed and breakfast/evening meals.
  • Maintain contact with the school Accommodation and Welfare Office.
  • Assist students in settling in.

Our experiences..

Our experiences have always been positive with all the students you allocate to us. I think this is down to the matching of hosts to students in terms of like minded needs and personalities.

I always enjoyed taking students and in particular working with Languages United. I think they are the best language school in Bath and always very professional.

We have had very very good experiences hosting and love it! We host through other companies too and like how you do things. We feel supported by you, and communicated with. I feel I know where I am with you and your schedule app works very well indeed.

I hosted Spanish..

I hosted a Spanish, Italian and a Russian student this summer, all of them delightful. I thought the student's timetables were great and packed with things for them to do and see and I was generally happy with everything.
