ACCOMMODATION STYLE: HOMESTAY

What better way to learn the language and culture than to live with a host family. Host families provide a warm and welcoming environment, providing meals in the home as well as an opportunity to immerse yourself in everything the country and culture has to offer. Just like families in Canada, host families abroad represent many different compositions, nationalities and live in a variety of different areas from small towns or villages to larger cities. Families come in all shapes and sizes but one thing they all have in common is that they are motivated to be part of the experience and look forward to welcoming you into their home! 

ORIENTATION

Students arrving in September and February will participate in an orientation at the start of the exchange program. The orientation provides for a cultural introduction, a chance to meet other exchange students and the opportunity to sight-see before meeting your host family in your host community! A great way to start your exchange with a little touring and cultural prep!

For those looking for a little more language tutoring, students may also opt to participate in a 3.5 week long language camp, providing additional language immersion and lessons prior to the start of your program!
