Host Families

Apply to be a host family with English Exchange

The application process

When you apply for the programme we will ask you to fill in a detailed application form. It’s important that we have enough information about your family so that we can match your family with one of our students. We also send part of the application to the student you decide to host, so that they can learn about their new family.

A home visit

After we have received your application, one of our Local Support Coordinators will arrange to visit you, and to see your home. The LSC will be the support person for your family and the student throughout the programme, and they will be able to answer any questions you may have, as well as give you useful tips to help you get the most out of the hosting experience.
