Staying with a Host Family is an ideal way to experience a new way of life and to improve all aspects of English language communication.

Friendly, helpful families make your stay in Queenstown and Christchurch more enjoyable and enrich your cultural experience while helping you to practice and improve your English.

Host families have been selected for their interests, friendliness, safe neighbourhoods, convenience to transportation, and comfortable homes. All homes offer you a private bedroom, two meals a day, three meals at the weekend, and access to shared TV, telephone, and laundry.

All of our homestay families are inspected by our Accommodation Co-ordinator. All families live within a short walk of a bus stop. No student is ever placed in a homestay where the host family or other students speak their language as a native speaker, unless requested.

Homestay Accommodation

A homestay experience is a great way to connect with the local community and practice your English. Homestay families like to know you, your country and your culture, so please talk to your family as much as possible.

Please follow the family’s rules and ask your family if you are unsure about something. Here are some standard family rules:

Online Family Entertainment

🚫 Please limit your shower time to 5-10 minutes.

🚫 Keep your room clean and tidy.
