American Experiences

Host Family Living

During the school year, students live with a host family. By staying with a host family, students improve their English skills on a more consistent basis and are able to learn/experience American culture first-hand.

International students are allowed to travel with their host families during their time abroad (proper procedure must be followed). The U.S. is home to many scenic national parks, big cities, and world-renowned tourist destinations, such as:

  • Yosemite National Park
  • The Statue of Liberty
  • The Space Needle
  • Golden Gate Bridge
  • Hollywood


Adapting to a new culture can be hard, but fortunately the United States is made up of many people from around the globe. Students who come to the U.S. will get to experience a number of cultures while abroad, through meals, people, and activities.
