We recommend our students stay in Chile with a Chilean family, helping them become familiar with our customs while practicing Spanish in a pleasant environment. Each family home has a private room for the student, and offers breakfast and dinner – plus a laundry service for an all-inclusive price. Host families are chosen according to strict criteria such as distance from the Institute (available transport to and from), the host family’s environment and their willingness to share their life with the student. We give each student an evaluation form to assess the host family. We analyze these evaluations on a monthly basis. If, for any reason, the student does not feel comfortable in a family, an alternative will be proposed.

1 week: 160 USD
2 weeks: 320 USD
3 weeks: 460 USD
4 weeks: 580 USD
