Being an English Language Homestays Host is a fun, interesting and rewarding experience that generates an extra income for you.
If you live in the Sussex towns of Shoreham-by-Sea, Lancing, Steyning, Storrington, Hove, Eastbourne or Burgess Hill we would love to hear from you.
What is a host family?
Our Short Stay and Summer School students require ‘homestay’ accommodation. This simply means that our students stay in the home of our selected hosts during their stay.
What’s Involved in being a Host?
Firstly, to be a Host you need to have a spare guest room that has 1 or 2 beds in it and be keen to let our guest students come and stay.
However, being a Host is not only about providing accommodation to a foreign student but also about creating a welcoming and friendly atmosphere for someone who is on holiday in a foreign country. For our younger students this is especially important as this may be their first time away from home.
Our Hosts provide Full Board accommodation or to put it another way, provide all their meals. In practice this means breakfast and evening meal, with a packed lunch for during the day as the students are normally out on activities during the day.
Unlike our Homestay Tutors, you are not expected to formally teach students. The students that go to Hosts are part of a programme with lessons included which are conducted at our language schools
Do I have to undertake any Activities?
We like the students to be actively involved in the Hosts family/home as this provides a more enriching experience for the student and you. As the students are learning English it also gives them a chance to practice their skills in a friendly environment.
Our students have a fairly full schedule throughout their stay but we do leave some free time in it and many Hosts do enjoy involving the students in activities.
How do I receive Payment?
We have set fees for Homestays with payments made at the end of a student/s visit.
We will be happy to discuss the rates with you when you contact us.
