How Our Homestays Work
Using specific information gathered from both host and student, American Homestay Inc. matches each student with a the best suited host family. We look at a variety of factors including proximity to the student’s school, available public and private transportation, and overall compatibility with the host family. The host provides the student with a private bedroom and an agreed upon meal plan. The host also helps the student in learning the local customs, banking, medical and transportation systems. Host includes the student in family activities that will help the student become integrated into the American lifestyle. Students will be encouraged to share information about their home cultures and countries. Our hosts also enjoy the opportunity of a unique cultural experience.
Homestay fees vary depending on accommodation, meal plan and location. Each visiting student pays a homestay fee to American HomeStay Inc.to cover management and supervision of their stay, emergency hotline support services, translation services, and airport transportation services. We pay the hosts to cover day-to-day food and accommodation expenses. Hosts get paid revery two weeks while hosting a student.
