Homestays in Guadalajara, Mexico
The best way to learn about
Mexican customs and traditions is to live with a local family. Although
we arrange homestays mainly for our own students, we will be very pleased
to help anyone find a nice host family in Guadalajara.
We always place students with hosts who have similar habits and interests.
For example, we would never match smokers with non-smokers. We will
do our best to fulfill any special requests you might have when we arrange
your homestay for you.
We normally place Spanish language students in homes where the families
speak Spanish as their first language. Fortunately, Guadalajara
is also home to a large number of people who are originally from Canada
or the United States. Thus, we are able to place English language
students with English speaking families. This way, our students
all enjoy full immersion in the language that they are studying.
We encourage hosts and students to think of each other as family.
Students have the same rights and responsibilities that they would if
they were living with their parents. Our hosts provide all of the
meals for our students.
There is a one-time Homestay Placement
Fee of US$65. The Homestay Fee is US$15 per night. Click

GETTING TO KNOW YOUR NEW FAMILY
Your host family will be as excited
about this visit as you are. You should try to write a letter to your
new friends before you leave. You might want to tell them about your family,
friends, school and pets. You can ask your host family about their hobbies,
sports and other interests. Your hosts would also like to receive a photo
of you and your family, with your names on the back. If you are not sure
of how to pronounce the names of your hosts, you might want to ask someone
SPEAKING WITH YOUR HOSTS
If you have trouble communicating
with your host family, do not give up! It is normal to have difficulty
making yourself understood at the beginning. If you use every available
opportunity to speak with your hosts, conversations in your new language
will become easier each day.
