Host Family Accommodation

Students often say that their living situation is almost as important as their course.

Living with a local family gives the student a chance to practice their social English in the evenings as well as share cultures with their hosts.

A large number of our host families have welcomed students into their homes for many years and are very experienced and sensitive when a new student joins their family. Students do not often know what to expect and at inlingua Cheltenham we like to make sure that they are as informed as they can be about their new family before their arrival and put student and family in touch. Many students and host families become friends and stay in touch long after the student has finished their course.

We take pride in our host families and appreciate how integral they are to the student’s study abroad experience.

Our Accommodation is organised in-house by our Accommodation Officer and all host families offered by inlingua Cheltenham are checked on a regular basis and conform to the high standards expected by the British Council.
