HOST FAMILY - IRELAND
The most preferred accommodation type by the students, who come to Ireland especially for language education, is host family accommodation. Host families provide regular life opportunity and secure environment. The student will live as a member of an Irish family for the duration of their stay. This accommodation option allows the student to practice English outside of the classroom and immerse themselves in Irish family culture.
As Education State, we decide to work with a family after we make face-to-face interviews and examine the environment of the house.
