Why Choose Homestay Accommodation?

Staying with a local homestay host provides the opportunity to truly experience a warm Manchester welcome. It also allows you to practise your speaking and listening skills in a natural environment with friendly people. We know all of our hosts personally and they are within easy reach of the school with a commuting time of no more than 30 – 45 minutes.

Choosing this form of accommodation allows you to:

  • immerse yourself into local British culture
  • speak English every day in an authentic environment
  • share meals with your hosts
  • make new friends – many of our students stay in touch with their hosts long after they have returned home!

With your homestay family, you will  have a comfortable room of your own, with space to study.  Bathroom facilities are normally shared.  Our adult students normally choose to have breakfast and evening meal with their hosts, although if you have different requirements, just speak to one of the team at The Essential English Centre.

We carefully place each of our students with a homestay host that we believe is the right match for them, and because our hosts are warm, friendly and welcoming, our students find the experience to be enjoyable and rewarding.
