Many of our host families are within walking distance of the school, others are 1 or 2 stops away on the DART line. We will provide travel cards when necessary. There are a maximum of 3 students per host family. Most students will be in twin rooms, others in singles or triples. Students are not placed with other students of the same nationality unless requested or agreed in advance. Families provide full board, with a packed lunch on afternoons when there are activities.
