Homestay Immersion for Individuals & Groups

This program proudly represents the foundation of Nacel Open Door programs. A young person from abroad can improve their English with 24/7 immersion in a host family. The friendships which result from living as a member of an American family encourage continued communication and understanding between two countries.

This program includes placement with a well-screened host family who provides a safe environment, involvement with everyday activities, and all meals in the home. The program is three or four weeks long depending on location.
