    What is hosting?

    Becoming a homestay host is a great way of meeting international students from all over the world, and sharing English language and culture with them. By staying with local families, our NCG English students really immerse themselves in the language and get a taste of the local life. In return, you can learn about their language and culture – and receive a regular payment from NCG!

    We ask our students to treat you with respect – and to treat your home like a home, not a hotel. Our accommodation team will make sure that we match you with the right fit for your family.

    In return, we ask that you:

    Encourage the student to speak English as much as possible to help them learn

    Respect that this is not always possible, and that they might want to speak their own language to friends or family.

    Treat them as a family member, not a lodger – and look after their safety and welfare, even if they are an adult

    Cooperate with the accommodation staff at NCG to help us resolve any possible problems

    Respect their cultural and religious background and be sensitive to any differences (think dietary needs)
