Living with an American family is a wonderful way to increase your English language skills and learn about life in the United States!

Students are placed with carefully selected homestay families from the area. GLI does not contract with a third-party homestay placement company. Rather, students are placed with families who we know personally and whose homes we have visited. We are also parents, so the quality of our homestay program is important to us! All meals are included. For weekday lunches, students typically prefer to purchase their own lunch at the numerous convenient and inexpensive options for eating very near the campus. However, students may also arrange with their homestay family to bring a lunch from home.
