One of the best ways to learn more about the people of England is to choose homestay/private home* accommodation. Family life is informal and the people are welcoming, friendly and talkative, so you will have plenty of opportunities to practise your English.
CES is able to offer our students in Leeds a large selection of homestay/private home accommodation. Homestay/private home accommodation includes breakfast, packed lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Average travel time from homestays/private home and to the school is 30-45 minutes by public transport.
En-suite bedrooms are very limited and are subject to availability.
Homestay/private home accommodation is charged on a 7 nightly basis.
*In a private home, you can expect to meet a number of other students of different nationalities.
Having chosen a homestay or private home suitable for you, details will be sent to the hosts and we would suggest you make contact with them to confirm your arrival time. You will have a light breakfast and evening meal every day.
"Homestay - The hosts treat the student as a full member of the household, eating together and sharing the common living areas; no more than four students will be accommodated in homestay accommodation at any one time (homes accommodating more than four adult students are described as private home accommodation)."
"Private home accommodation - Accommodation in a private home for adult students (over 16 students); more than four students may be accommodated in the home; there may be less direct contact with the host(s). (Private home accommodation is not suitable for under-16s.)"
