The Homestay Concept
Global Partners believes that to best learn another language and culture, complete immersion is needed. Our language classes, excursions and activities in the community are complimented by the Homestay aspect of our programs. Program participants are not guests in North American homes; they are members of North American families, participating in all that North American family life has to offer. We are committed to providing our students with outstanding, quality host families. All potential host families must provide at least two references which are thoroughly checked by Global Partners' Program Coordinators. An interview is conducted with all members of the family, and a visit is made to the family's home to ensure that the student's accommodations are acceptable. Our coordinators are in constant contact with host families and students during throughout the program.
