We arrange homestay with local families for all our students. Students have their own rooms, eat all their meals and participate in family life. This allows for Spanish practice outside the classroom and integration into community life. Families in both urban and rural areas are available.

You can choose whether you want to stay in a house or apartment; whether you want to stay with the family that has children; or even a vegetarian family. 

For those who prefer to live independently, we can arrange for a private room or apartment.
