How many students can I host?

You can host up to two students at a time. You might be able to host more than two students at a time if you have adequate space in your home. You can host as many students consecutively as you like. You are paid per student, per night, on a bi-weekly basis.

Do the students speak English?

Yes! English proficiency will vary, but almost all students will have some English skills when they arrive.

💡Tip: It's important to keep in mind that many students are trying to improve their English by choosing a homestay. We encourage you to practice speaking English with your student whenever you can. Be flexible, sensitive and patient when communicating with your student and try to use clear, understandable English.
