Birmingham Homestay

HOMESTAY ACCOMMODATION

Our aim is to give our students the best possible English language-learning experience while enjoying British life and culture. We believe one of the best ways to do this is to live with one of our friendly and carefully chosen homestay providers. 

This is one of the most popular choices of accommodation as it allows students to feel at home in a new country and have the opportunity to practise your English in a relaxed and comfortable environment. 

What you can expect in a homestay

 

  • A private bedroom with a comfortable bed
  • A friendly host with regular English conversation
  • Access to communal areas of the house
  • A table/desk or a quiet area to study in the house
  • Storage space for your clothes or belongings
  • Travel distance from homestay to school 5-25 mins by bus or on foot.
