 In TALK Schools

One of the aspects that requires more research and dedication when planning your journey to learn English in the United States is your accommodation choice. After all, this will be the place where you will rest after school hours and after having fun in your host city, as well as where you will relax, study, eat, shower… And be sure of something: choosing the right accommodation can even help you improve your English language skills!

TALK English Schools offers different accommodation options so you can choose the best alternative according to your personality and preferences, the time you plan to spend studying in the United States and, most importantly, the one that best fits your budget.


Homestay is one of the most popular and economic options for international students. You will occupy a bedroom in an American family home, having a real cultural experience and practicing English outside the classroom. Families participating in the TALK Homestay Program are selected, among several criteria, for their ease of access from home to school via public transportation. In exchange for your accommodation in a safe and comfortable environment, you will participate in family activities, contribute to house chores and get involved with the local community.
