Homestay is a great way to learn about American culture and practice English with native speakers. In a homestay, a host family provides a private, furnished room and three meals daily. You will have a unique cultural experience in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Other accommodations, including apartments or hotels, can be arranged.

People who are interested in hosting are interviewed and screened carefully. Those that are selected to host for The PLACE are diverse. They are families, single parents, retired couples, and singles. Although each host is unique, they are all open to sharing their homes with international students and learning about various cultures.

During your stay, The PLACE is available if you have any problems with your host family or if you need help communicating with them.
