If you stay with a  host family, you are likely to improve your English language skills and enhance your knowledge of Canadian culture.

So, how can a Canadian family make your summer program exciting?

Canadian host families are selected as per the students’ needs

The Canadian families are carefully selected for the summer program in LLI so that the students can stay in a welcoming, friendly, and warm living environment. The students need to list their hobbies, interests, dietary requirements, and others in the application form. This will help the institute select a suitable family for respective students who have a shared interest.

Students can improve their English language skills

Staying with a  Canadian family can boost the students’ English language skills as they will be highly immersed in the language. Living with a native English speaker will help students to pick up the languages quicker. The students can practice their conversational skills daily while staying with a Canadian family.

Students can learn about Canadian culture

It is a culturally enriching experience for foreign students when they stay with a Canadian family during their summer program. If you are interested in learning about new cultures, you will cherish every moment of staying with a native family in Canada.

Students will feel like staying at home

Feeling homesick is common among students who are going overseas for a study program for the first time. Adjusting in a new country with new people may be daunting for young students with persisting linguistic barriers. So, staying with a Canadian family can offer you a home-like experience.

Student safety will be maintained

Child safety and welfare are a top priority for the institute when international students are leaving their homes behind to attend the summer program. Students will get a home-like environment with Canadian families. Students’ safety will be taken care of by both the learning institute and the homestay coordinator.

Final words
