Host Family FAQ

When would I Host?

Our students generally go to Host Families during their half term holidays, which are usually 1 – 2 weeks depending on the school. Some schools also have exact weekends, where students are required to leave school from Friday after lessons finish, and return on Sunday at around teatime.

Will you want us as a Host Family as we have no children/are retired?

The simple answer is YES! Some of our students ask specifically to go to a family with no children - they may want a quiet house where they can study and there will not be much background noise.

How much will we get paid to become a Host Family?

You will receive payment for hosting, plus generous expenses. More details on payments will be given to you during the interview stage.
