Our programs at a glance
Since 1979, EF Language Travel is dedicated to encouraging international awareness and mutual respect between nations through cultural exchange.
Chaperoned groups of international students ages 10 to 17 travel to selected communities in the U.S. to live with host families and to learn about American culture first hand. Daily language classes are combined with afternoon activities and sightseeing trips.

What is the role of a host family?
Our host families come in all shapes and sizes; single parent households, empty-nesters, and families with small children or with teenagers. If you are able to provide a bed (students can share a room), 3 meals a day, local transportation to a conveniently located meeting point and a caring environment, you have what it takes to share your life with an eager student from abroad!
Families are supported by local experienced staff who are accessible 24 hours a day. Students are fully insured and bring their own spending money. Students are busy with EF staff Monday-Friday 8:30AM-5:30PM with classes and activities, and you will have the opportunity to spend time with them during the evenings and some weekends.
Your local EF Language Travel team will also conduct a Host Family Orientation before the students arrive that we require you attend. At this meeting you will learn important deta
