In Totnes you will live with a host family in a twin room. The school always tries, if possible, to host two young people with different mother tongues in the same family, because it is fundamental that students really practices English and that the process of learning the language is done automatically.

The host families live within walking distance of the school. According to the principles of our partner school, there are many families whose priority is not to earn money, but rather to host young people and have an exchange with them.
