Host family 18+

Living in a family from New Zealand doesn´t just offer an unique experience, but also offers you the possibility to learn the language in real communication situations. The selection criteria of the families is based on the good interaction with students and the comfort of the houses. In many cases the families have been working already a long time together with the school.

You can book a single room with half board (breakfast and dinner). Families generally are living in areas of Auckland which are 40 to 60 minutes away from the school. All families are living nearby a stop of public transportations, so that the students can get easily to the school. For a family that lives nearer to the school (30-40 minutes instead of 40-60 minutes) you have to pay a surcharge (see commentary in the price list). Please tell us if you want to book this option. In this case the surcharge will be added manually to your invoice.
