Staying with a local family is both exciting and rewarding. Host families provide the best insight into how an American family leads their life. This interaction with a family helps students communicate better, faster and allows them to pick up words and nuances used in daily situations.

Some host families have three story homes with several bedrooms, whilst others have a smaller apartment. All homestays are located in safe areas of the city. Students may find New York to be very fast paced and may notice that their host families work long hours.

Students’ rooms are sufficiently spacious with a source of natural light, a comfortable bed and a reasonable supply of blankets, sheets, bath towels and pillows. There will be storage facilities with drawers and closets with adequate hanging space. The student will have a desk or table for private study, a reading lamp, adequate power outlets, a mirror, and a waste paper basket.

Additionally, students will have open access to common areas such as the living room, kitchen, dining room, etc. Some hosts may have restrictions on using the kitchen or bathroom.

It is rare for apartments to have a washer and dryer in the apartment. Most New York City homes will have a common laundry room in the building or students will have to go to a local Laundromat.
