families, whose primary language is English, and who have extra
room for an adult student. Our students request homestays because
they want to learn American culture and practice their English
in the world's greatest classroom, your home. You will not only
give a student the chance to experience daily American life,
but you will also provide yourself and your family with an opportunity
to learn about another culture without having to leave your

be shared) for each student
2. Providing a safe and comfortable environment,
and accommodating no more than two (2)
international students (including students from other organizations).
3. Providing breakfast (self-served) and dinner
7 days a week. Ideally, the student should have dinner with
you and your family as often as possible. If you are unable
to cook some evenings, please let the student know in advance
and leave food for him/her to prepare.
4. Be available for airport pickup on the day
of the student's arrival.

compensated for each student that they host.
