This is the ideal situation for students who wish to experience Italian daily life and to practise the language in an informal atmosphere. Naturally it will take a little time to settle in and get used to your new environment, but it will be without doubt an interesting experience. For all minor students the school will reserve only homestay accommodation. Most of our homestays have only single roooms and twin rooms (for two students coming together) are avaialbale only on request. Homestay accommodation offers a variety of meal arrangements: breakfast, half board and use of the kitchen. All our accommodation is of high quality and and never more than a 30-minutes journey by public transport to school. We take great care in selecting our homestay accommodation. Our accommodation and welfare officers regularly visit local homes to make sure a high standard of service is offered to you. Being in constant touch with our hosts means that we get to know them very well and that also helps us to match clients with hosts. We also carefully check feedback to make sure that course participants who stay in homestay are happy and that standards remain high.
Your hosts - We have a wide variety of families. Some consist of young couples, either with or without children, some are older, some are single parent families and others are widows living alone. Living with an Italian family will be very helpful for practising your Italian. Whoever your hosts are, they will be accustomed to having visitors stay with them. They will want to make sure you are happy and comfortable in their home.
Other guests in the same accommodation - You may not be the only guest staying in this accommodation. If there is another visitor he/she will speak a different language to you, so you will have plenty of opportunity to practise speaking Italian.
- Half Board – Breakfast and dinner, served every day including week ends.
- Breakfast – You will be served a typical Italian breakfast every day of the week. This option does not foresee using the hosts kitchen to prepare other meals.
- Use of the kitchen – This is a self catering solution, though living with a hostfamily, you can prepare your own meals and buy your own food.
