Living with a family is an excellent way to really experience American traditions and culture. It’s also a perfect opportunity to practice your English language skills with real Americans every day.
If you choose our homestay option, you will stay with a family in the Bay Area. We have carefully checked and interviewed them and we trust them to provide you with a great stay! You can choose to have a single room, or share a room with another student. Families provide 14 meals per week (breakfast and dinner). Most host families are located within 40-60 minutes of Stafford House Centers by public transportation.
At Stafford House we do all we can to ensure we match you with your perfect homestay. If you wish to truly experience American culture by staying at one of our homestays, please allow us 4 weeks before you arrive at the school to arrange your accommodation to ensure we can find a homestay experience best suited to you.
