Please complete the form below if you would like to become a host for English in Chester.
Our students choose to stay in homestays because they want to practise their English, therefore we can only consider applications from households where the language spoken at home is English and all members of the household have a demonstrable native-like speaker competence in English.
If your application is successful we will ask you for the contact details of 2 character referees that you are happy for us to approach without further authorisation. Referees will be asked specifically if there are any reasons why you or anyone in your household should not have responsibility for vulnerable people and young people under the age of 18.
We like having students as guests and want to give them all the comforts our home can provide. Interaction and conversation is always a pleasure, especially at meal times. Many of our new friends keep in touch long after they have returned home.
We have been a host for fifteen years. We feel that it is the most important part of your studies with the school, to be living with a typical English family. It will be a most wonderful experience for you that you will carry through your life.
We enjoy being a host for mature students. We hope that they get as much out of the experience as we do. As a family we have learnt a lot about different cultures. We feel it's important to provide a comfortable, warm, friendly and secure home away from home.
