Living with a Canadian family – a ‘homestay’ – is the perfect way to immerse yourself in English on a daily basis. We select friendly host families who will make you feel comfortable. You will have plenty of opportunities to practice your English with them. We carefully choose the families based on your individual needs. For example, if you are allergic to dogs or cats, we will ensure that you stay in an animal-free environment. A homestay will provide you with a furnished room (including a bed, desk, lamp and chair), kitchen and washroom access, hot water and laundry for free. Each day, three meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) will be prepared for you. If you prefer only two meals a day, this can be arranged. Please inform the host family if you are going to miss a meal (for example, if you plan to travel on the weekend).
– Students’ Residence
For those who prefer more privacy, we offer lodging in a students’ residence. This includes either a private or shared bedroom, with desk, lamp and internet. You will have access to a kitchen but you will be in charge of your own meals and laundry. There will also be a lounge (a common area) which you will share with other international students who are also learning English. Living in a students’ residence is an easy way to meet people, especially if you are looking for people to travel with. You will also have a great opportunity to practice your English if you choose to stay in a students’ residence.
– Additional lodging options
Toronto has many hostels and hotels if you prefer to arrange your own accommodations.
