Our home stay program is a very important part of your overall language experience. You will stay with a host family, unless you request differently in which case we will work with you to find adequate hotel accommodations. Our host families are carefully screened to have a very helpful attitude towards students. We have also selected homes that offer a level of comfort not too far from what you are used to finding in your home country.
Our selection process assures that all our students will have a comfortable and pleasant stay in Puebla. Although our host families receive a compensation to provide you a home, they do enjoy having a foreign student as a guest.
All three meals will be provided. Normally you will eat the same food as the family; unless you have indicated special diet restrictions on your application form. In which case we will communicate to your host family about your needs.
In an orientation meeting you will be informed of any cultural differences that may exist between a Mexican family and one from your home country. Sharing your time and meals with your family is one of the best opportunities you will have to practice your Spanish and learn more about Mexican culture and values.
