Home Stay or family accommodation is arranged in carefully selected families. Home stay is an opportunity to experience family life and should be regarded more of a cross cultural exchange than a simple renting of accommodation. Home Stay is a very popular choice because you live with a local family to better learn the lifestyle and culture as well as improve your language skills while sharing meals and facilities and practising your English in a traditional and friendly environment.
In self-catering accommodation you will be living with other students in student houses, student apartments or a large student residence. This normally includes your own study/bedroom and use of the kitchen and its equipment. You might need to buy, prepare and cook your own food or purchase it outside. Students are usually required to do their own laundry, but would have use of washing machine facilities.
