You’ll be challenged.
Most students who travel abroad and stay with a host family will find themselves at some point in a situation that challenges them. Being outside your comfort zone can help you learn a lot not just about the language but about yourself too.
“Staying in the heart of a British family will improve your understanding of British culture.”
You Immerse in the language.
Foreign language is far easier to learn and understand if you spend time immersed in the culture of the country. Host family stays offer just this. Having to live and communicate with a British family will rapidly accelerate learning as you are forced to practice and challenge your language skills every day.
Build cultural understanding.
Staying in the heart of a British family will improve your understanding of British culture. Being aware of differences between your own culture and another nationality will help your understanding of international issues and conflicts, and broaden your understanding of people as a whole.
Adapt to Internationalisation
In an increasingly globalised society, experience of travel, culture and language will serve as a invaluable part of your wider understanding of other cultures and how they react to increasing pressures on boarders and sovereignty.
Travel builds confidence.
The challenges you face when trying to live and communicate with an English family will build confidence in your ability and independence. These experiences are easily transferred to other parts of your life too.
Staying in a host family allows a unique opportunity to meet and make friends with people of a different nationality and culture. A social network across boarders can prove to be a really useful tool in future life.
