What is Homestay?

Homestay is a cultural exchange between a local individual or family (the host) and a visiting student; the student lives as a guest in the host family’s home.

Why is Homestay a great option?

AHN Homestay Hosts are trained to assist international students:

·         Settle into their new community

·         Understanding the basics of Australian culture

·         Everyday conversational skills

·         Learning the basics such as buying transport tickets, where the local shops are, how to access:

·         Banking, internet, mobile phone and personal safety tips

·         Frequently used English and ‘Australian’ words and phrases

Unlike other accommodation options students don’t need to sign any long-term contracts, pay a bond, find furniture or search for a property themselves.  Students are matched by a fully trained AHN Supervisor with a suitable AHN Homestay Host according to the needs of the student and education provider location.

An AHN Homestay student is provided with:

·         A clean furnished room (this includes items like a bed, desk, wardrobe, chair and a study lamp), as well as

·         a supportive family environment and home to live in

·         Meals (as specified) and accommodation (including utilities)

·         Ongoing Homestay host and student support

·         AHN 24/7 professional phone support

·         AHN Contents Insurance for students and hosts as per AHN Insurance Policy http://www.homestaynetwork.org/ahn-insurance

·         Bathroom and laundry facilities
