Cultural and language immersion programmes are a valuable way for language students to increase their knowledge about Ireland while perfecting their spoken English. It is well recognised that total immersion is the best way to learn and improve competency in a new language.
A homestay with an Irish host family gives foreign visitors an experience of Ireland quite different to any other.
Hosting a foreign student brings rewards to the host family also. It broadens the horizons of children and gives them an appreciation of the value of a foreign language. Many enduring friendships are formed and opportunities for travel and exchanges not previously anticipated become a reality.
The things which are ordinary and banal to us are a source of wonder and an opportunity for learning for our students. Activities such as visiting a bog and learning about turf cutting are a world away from city life and fast paced traffic in which many students spend their daily lives. Riding a pony on the beach , or cycling a bicycle on a quiet country road are cherished activities and warmly remembered moments.
Share you home , your way of life , your language and your culture with a foreign student this year.
We look after the homestay bookings for our foreign students.
