What is online Hosting?

In April of 2020 in response to the Covid 19 Pandemic we launched our Online Host Family Experience with great success!

Our Online Host Family Experience brings the traditional hosting experience online via a series of interactive video calls. Your child will be virtually welcomed into their Irish Host Families home and will have the opportunity to interact with an Irish child of a similar age for one hour every day for a period of 1 or 2 weeks, following an agreed schedule.

The aim of the program is to help your child improve their spoken English through a fun, immersive online experience with a friendly and engaging Irish Host Family. They will also learn about Irish family life & culture and hopefully make new friends too!

You can choose the family you want to connect with and search our database by age, gender & interests.

This new programme complements our existing traditional programme will serve as an introduction for families and students. It is our hope that students will visit their Host Family in the future when it is safe to do so.
