We have been teaching languages the ILH way for over 20 years and our wealth of experience has shown that studying and living with your teacher in their own home is one of the most effective and enjoyable ways to learn a language.
A complete language solution whatever your level or budget!
The Homestay Experience
The ILH experience includes accommodation and all meals, and you will participate fully in your host teacher’s social and family life after class. Most importantly, you will feel part of the family.
As you are living in your host teacher’s home and using the language constantly, the learning process continues all day – not just during lessons, but all the time: during meals, on trips and when enjoying activities.
The host family is chosen with your interests in mind, and diet or special requests are taken into consideration.
Personal attention is guaranteed from start to ﬁnish. Your individually designed course will take into consideration your interests, language needs and personal objectives.
Staying in your teacher’s own home and participating in their daily family life immerses you fully in the language you are learning. Language practice continues throughout the day: during meals, on trips and when enjoying activities with your hosts. Your language homestay guarantees an eﬀective course as well as an enjoyable and sociable stay.

As a Local Organiser, the contact I have with students during their course is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job. All rightly enthuse about the beauty of the South East, not only because of the countryside but also because of the range of things to do and see. This lovely county is a favourite for its historical links, cultural and shopping opportunities and also its seaside towns. With much improved transport links throughout the area, access to London has become much easier.
Madrid, with it’s vibrant cultural life, is a fantastic city. As we say, ‘de Madrid al Cielo’! The centre contains incomparable architectural treasures and a huge choice of things to do and places to visit. In Madrid we speak standard Spanish. It is my job to offer the most suitable host teacher for each student. I am very aware that the wellbeing of the student contributes greatly to getting the most out of his or her course.
Sydney is Australia’s largest city and its suburbs are located around one of the world’s most natural harbours. Some well known images of Sydney include the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and the spectacular beaches. It is the relaxed lifestyle, the warm summers and mild winters that make Sydney an ideal place to visit and study English. It is also a metropolis of many cultures and offers a variety of shopping, international cuisine and world class entertainment.
The San Francisco Bay Area attracts visitors from around the world certainly because of its natural beauty, cultural diversity, and proximity to coastal areas, beaches, mountains and renowned national parks, such as Yosemite. The cities of San Francisco and Berkeley offer a remarkable variety of cultural and recreational activities, which include music venues, theatre, cinema and quality art museums. For those who enjoy sports, from golf and tennis to kayaking and sailing, the choice is wide open. For local sight seeing, The Golden Gate Bridge and Park, Fisherman’s Wharf, North Beach and China Town are near by. International Language Homestay students will enjoy an unforgettable visit and learning experience!
