We arrange homestays with local families for all our students. They are provided with their own rooms, eat their meals and participate in family life. This allows them to practice their Spanish outside the classroom and to integrate into community life. Families in both urban and rural areas are available.

You can choose whether you want to stay in a house or apartment; whether you want to stay with the family that has children; or even a vegetarian family.

For those who prefer to live independently, we can arrange for a private room or apartment.
