How long is a homestay? 🗓
Great news–the length of your homestay is completely up to you! It all depends on your academic plans in the USA.
If you are part of a short-term group, your timeframe will likely range from 4 weeks to 12 months
High schools students usually stay for at least one academic year (10 months)
Over-18 students are recommended to stay with a host family for at least 4 weeks America before moving to their own apartment (to get settled and have support adjusting to American culture)
Sometimes students choose to live with a particular family throughout their whole educational stay in the United States. The longer you stay with your host family, the more you can get to know them and develop lifelong friendships. ❤️
