Interaction with Family

One of the greatest advantages of living with a homestay family while studying in B.C. is the opportunity to talk with your homestay family and participate in family activities. Your homestay experience is an excellent way to improve your English language skills, learn more about life in B.C., and build long-lasting relationships.

It is important to understand that not all homestay families and homestay experiences will be the same. Some families may spend a lot of time with you in their home, while others may be busy with work and other responsibilities. It is important to be flexible and make the most of your opportunity to live with a B.C. homestay family.

In many cases, homestay families may be quite informal with each other. This means you may call your homestay parents by their first name.
