Expand Your World

American English Institute places international students with warm, loving families so that they can practice their English outside of class, live in a family setting and feel cared for, and understand American culture.


Our host families represent the American lifestyle--from traditional families with children, to single parents, to retired folks and single people interested in welcoming a student into their home.


Our families provide students with:

  • A private furnished room with bed, dresser, desk, chair and lamp (single placement in a room is required for long-term hosting)
  • Shared or private bathroom
  • Wifi internet connection
  • Breakfast (students help themselves)
  • Dinner (sit down with family)

Families include students in their daily lives and make them part of the family!  In turn, hosts expand their world view learning about different cultures while helping students to learn more about ours!


Hosts must:

  • Live within 10 miles of AEI
  • Live in a home or townhouse (renters are okay)
  • Be within a 20 minute bus, bike, car or walk to AEI (students do not want to be too far from school)
  • Have a clean record
  • Submit an application to host
  • Schedule a homestay visit where an AEI representative will inspect the room and home and meet family members to determine suitability to host
