Families share absolutely everything. Day by day, excursions, trips, appointments with friends, … The student will feel totally integrated and will live as a family member experiencing a typical Spanish lifestyle.
An important factor is the short distance from the home-stay households to the Spanish language school. All our homestay accommodations are at a distance of less than 20 minutes walk from the educational centre, thus alleviating any unnecessary inconvenience.
Accommodation is half-board so the student will have breakfast and dinner with the family. During the day, the student will eat at the centre or nearby.
During weekends, if the student so wishes, he or she will be able to share the experiences of the family. Excursions, visits, meetings with friends,…
However, in most cases, the student will share a family with another student, of the same nationality or of a different one according to preference.
