Many students choose homestays to further increase their exposure to the English language and Canadian culture. Living in a homestay also provides you with the comforts and warmth of living in a kind and supportive family. Living in a homestay will allow you to practice your newly developed language skills with English speakers.

"I’ve been her 4 months and have had an amazing experience. I’ve met and made friends with many people from countries like Japan, Spain, Brazil, Korea, Saudi Arabia, France, Argentina and Venezuela. I have also learned a lot about their cultures. Each week there are many activities to do where you can interact and practice your English skills. Our teachers are from Canada and all of them are so kind.
I have now improved my English very fast and I feel very happy that when I go back to Mexico I can get a very good job."
