Global Immersions Homestay, the Boston Homestay Specialists, provides homestay services to all visitors to Boston. Our homestay program offers each visitor an in-depth experience into U.S. culture. Homestay is the perfect way to learn about daily life and improve English skills in a non-structured environment.
Dorm or apartment living does not allow a visitor to get the inside look and experience of daily life. Our visitors are exposed to a variety of experiences and have the opportunity to participate in activities or events which is not possible when you are living in dorm or apartment and not connected to a local.
Who are the visitors? International students enrolled in a specialized course, studying English or a group program, professionals attending courses or seminars, residents and interns at local hospitals and universities, researchers, individuals, couples or families vacationing in Boston, Americans taking courses or conducting business or visiting Boston.
Who are the hosts? Our network represents the diversity of metropolitan Boston and includes a multitude of options that include families with young children or teenagers, couples with no children, retirees, single parents with children and single professionals. The Global Immersions Homestay network includes hosts who are dedicated to providing a comfortable and safe environment for our visitors. Our hosts’ help visitors understand and adjust to everything from daily living to long-term living in U.S. culture. Our hosts have a wealth of worldly experience as well as provide a tremendous amount of resources to pass on to their visitors.
The Global Immersions team has the intercultural knowledge along with years of experience in homestay services and strives to ensure a positive experience for both the visitors and hosts! Our belief is that the best way to learn about U.S. culture during your stay in Boston is to immerse yourself and live it through homestay living.
