International Study and Language Travel

Living with a host family

It’s important that you feel at home in your new country – and the host family is a big part of your exchange year. We carefully select our host families, sometimes in cooperation with local organizations, and we will do our best to find the right home for you – safe, kind and motivated families. The families’s interest in caring for international students is always genuine. And your arrival will probably be the start of a lifelong friendship.

Experience a new way of life!

Open your mind

Feel at home. Communicate. Help out with chores and respect the household rules like you would at home. In return you will get a unique insight into the soul of a foreign nation. Daily life far from the tourist’s walking paths. We can promise you many great memories from dinners, holidays, outings and cultural traditions. Maybe you want to experience BBQ and Thanksgiving in the States, afternoon tea in the UK or a soccer game in Italy. Each and every destination has its own profile. The one thing they have in common is a host family that will give you a warm welcome!
