For over 40 years we have been working with student-hosting families to offer comfortable accommodation, a warm welcome, and a taste of the British way of life to international language students. It can be a fantastic experience for both students and families, as well as being a great way to earn a little extra money from your spare room.

We provide friendly households to students aged 11 to 17, from the Canary Islands.
