Homestays in New York
The GEOS Homestays in New York are intended to give our international students an up-close experience of New York's culture by taking part in the everyday life of the host family. In addition to using the practical English language skills learned in the language school, students should also participate in family activities in order to get an authentic look into life in New York City.
While living in one of our homestays in New York, students will be living in a 2 bedded room, which will consist of a desk, storage space, and a personal bed. Students will be served breakfast and dinner at the homestay in New York and a packed lunch will be prepared for them to be eaten with their classmates at the language school. The language school can be reached by public transport from the homestays in New York in approx. 60 minutes or less.
Students will be placed in a homestay that most matches their personality and/or needs. In order to do so, a GEOS staff member personally visits each of our homestays in New York with our students’ interests in mind. Families also undergo a police background check. The main objective of GEOS is to provide a secure, educational and vibrant environment where students can focus on learning Enlgish. All homestays in New York are in safe, comfortable neighborhoods within the city limits or the surrounding suburbs.
Our Homestays in New York will only be provided to our students.
