We believe that the students´s stay with a Spanish family is an essential part of the program, making a huge contribution to the progress of their communication skills. This is a unique opportunity to truly live like a Spaniard. Students will be placed with a family that has children their age. Students enjoy the warmth of Spanish family life while practicing their rapidly improving Spanish skills and getting to know Spanish culture and customs.
Families are subjected to a rigorous and thorough selection process before being chosen. We strive to ensure that the family taking a student, welcomes and treats him or her as one of their own. We always pay special attention to information that students provide in their applications to find the family that best suits their needs. The families’ children are also encouraged to participate in the afternoon activities with the students.
INESLE Madrid host families are looking to provide great care for their host students. They also want to share their home with a young person from another country and have a meaningful cultural exchange experience. When a student applies to become part of INESLE Madrid program, we assure that our students will be placed with a carefully screened host family, who is excited to welcome our students to their home and Spain.
