At Atlantic Canada Language Academy, we believe our students benefit greatly from enrolling in the Homestay Program. Sharing daily life with a Canadian family is one of the best ways to improve your English, learn about our culture, and adapt to life in Canada.
Our Accommodation Coordinator carefully selects host families to ensure that the highest standards of safety, compatibility, and services are met. All of our host families live in or around the picturesque town of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada and are within a twenty-minute drive to the school.
By participating in our HomeStay program you will have your own clean, private room. Some of our host families may provide private bathrooms, but it is not uncommon to share a bathroom with your Canadian family. You will have three complete meals per day, although you may be asked to prepare your own breakfast and pack your lunch to be eaten later at the Academy.
Television, computer, and telephone use are subject to the house rules. These rules will be explained to you upon your arrival at the household. A detailed description of your host family and their home will be sent to you once you have been matched.
Homestay students can expect to be treated fairly and honestly. Emphasis is placed upon mutual respect, kindness, and willingness to participate in household activities.
