The homestay option is especially recommended for students studying English. This will provide you with an opportunity to practice your English in a real world situation. Living in a family environment will also aid your adjustment to life in New Zealand.

We encourage you to commit to at least one month with your host family, which will allow you time to adapt to each other.

The weekly homestay fee of NZ$195 includes your own room, most meals, and power and laundry. It may also include internet access.
