"If you're looking to interact with locals in the country you're visiting, a homestay or farmstay offers an unbeatable opportunity for cross-cultural exchange. While living with a family for a few nights or a few weeks, you can practice a new language, learn to cook traditional dishes, get the inside scoop on local politics or see a neighborhood through the eyes of someone who lives there. 

Many people who have done homestays also find that by the time they leave, they feel less like a guest and more like a member of the family. Don't be surprised if you find yourself keeping in touch with your hosts long after you head back home."

The Benefits  of a Host Family

Enrolling in a homestay program is a once in a lifetime opportunity. You’re able to really engage with a generous and giving family who is taking it upon themselves to share with you their culture, customs and language. It is an immersive experience where you get to not only learn about a different culture but actually live it. You join in their meals, participate in their daily routines, and practice the Spanish language in a realistic environment. Studies show that we adapt quickly and we learn the fastest when we are truly immersed in something. When we allow ourselves to get out of our comfort zone, we can expand our minds and enrich our lives in ways that we never thought would be possible. Spain Abroad is so excited to offer this opportunity to our students. All of the host families have been vetted with complete background checks and intensive interviews in order to ensure a supportive, healthy, encouraging atmosphere for your time while you are with us in Spain. We look forward to connecting you with your second family!
