University students enjoy slightly different services depending on the city, but all locations offer considerable flexibility through tiered options. A student can, for example, choose from several meal plans, ask for a location close to the university, and/or sign up for our concierge transportation service. Fees vary based on the configuration of choices.
All our homestays focus on safety and support, but we place even greater emphasis on this for younger students. In addition to hosts who have been specially certified to care for high school students, students are assigned to a local homestay manager who can check in with them each month (by arrangement). High school homestays include private bedrooms with study space, private or shared bathrooms, three meals a day, and daily transportation to and from school. Additional services are also available for special needs and extracurricular activities.
AHN and our hosts act as custodians for students while they are in the program, with three levels of guardianship available depending on the individual student's needs
ESL schools partner with us to provide international students with a trusted and reliable home while they pursue their studies. Homestay is the ideal entry point for new students as they are immersed in the language, lifestyle and customs of living with a local family. This is particularly important for those students who wish to improve their English-speaking skills or to study at a local university.
We offer short-term study tour groups the same expertise and best practices of homestay accommodation as our longer-term placements. International tour groups receive all the advantages of our homestays, from our emphasis on safety and support to the cultural benefits of living with a local. We work with educational agents and tour organizers to adapt each homestay package to the type, size, and duration of the tour.
