What is Homestay?

Homestay is an excellent way to make friends, learn about Singapore’s multi – racial culture and at the same time practise your English/Mandarin while living in a safe and comfortable environment.

Singaporean families are generally kind, honest and friendly, and they enjoy meeting people from different countries. Students have their room furnished and they are responsible for keeping their room neat and tidy. Laundry services is optional and can be included in homestay costs, although some families will do the student’s laundry for them (especially the younger students). Usually the family will provide meals.

During the week, students receive breakfast and dinner, and on the weekends, students will join the homestay family. Students are encouraged to help the family with everyday tasks, like setting and clearing the table, and to participate in the family’s lifestyle.
We are available to meet with students and their parents to discuss and plan a comfortable “home away from home” environment.
