You must request Homestay at least 4 weeks in advance to find you a suitable American family. All payments are to be made directly to inlinguaŽ. Please complete our Application for Admission online and fill in the required Homestay section. You must also fully complete the credit card section. Your credit card will be then charged $195 for the one-time non-refundable finders fee, plus your homestay expenses for the first month, or for your full stay if under one month. Homestay expenses are as follow: $28.50 per night if you will stay for a minimum of 21 nights, and $32.50 per night for stays under 21 nights. Once the finders fee and the Homestay expenses have been paid inlinguaŽ will start looking for a family for you. The minimum stay is one month, unless the student notifies inlinguaŽ of a shorter initial period at the time of requesting this service. There is no refund if the student leaves the family during the required initial period. Payment for the next period of Homestay must be made no later than the last working day of your current Homestay period. If for any reason the student must leave the family after a new term starts, both inlinguaŽ and the family must be informed at least two weeks in advance to get a refund for the remaining days that the student will not be living there. The Finder's fee is fully refundable only if inlinguaŽ fails to provide a family within three weeks of the request. Homestay includes, but is not limited to, a private furnished bedroom, breakfast and dinner seven days a week, plus lunch on weekends.
As in any city, it normally takes approximately 40 to 60 minutes to get to school, either by bus, Metro or both. Please note and keep in mind that transportation fees may affect your budget if both bus and Metro are required to come to school. This is not a valid reason to request another family.
Our families are carefully selected. Host families may include couples with or without children, single parents, widows, inter-racial couples, and/or foreign spouses. The purpose of your stay is to be in a friendly and safe atmosphere where you will have the opportunity to practice English. inlinguaŽ is not responsible for illnesses, accidents or problems of any kind that may occur during the Homestay period. Health insurance coverage is mandatory for F-1 students (Student Visas), and it is highly recommended for any other students to meet the frequently expensive cost of treatments and hospitalization, if needed. It can be easily obtained through inlinguaŽ in case the student does not arrive with his/her own insurance.
