Host Family Experience - Language Immersion and Summer Camps

Host Family Experience

Our Host Families provide a “home from home” for your child during their stay in Ireland.
All host families are vetted by Hebe this process involves: Police Vetting, detailed application form and review by HEBE. Students are carefully matched to families based on interests and age of host family children. Many of our Host Families are experienced and have hosted for us in the past. Students are given their own bedroom.

With a large Host Family network we can offer a wide variety of choice for students whether they want a City stay in Dublin, a rural stay in the countryside surrounded by fields and horses or a a surfing stay on the Atlantic Ocean!

Summer Language Immersion Programme

We’re here to organise a fun filled family stay for your child where they can learn English and experience Irish Life, Culture & Cuisine first hand. The duration of the camp is typically 2 to 4 weeks.

We focus on camps where international students are mixed with English speaking students to help develop English and avoid speaking in their native language!
