She will be happy to coordinate your Italian Homestay Vacation.
Nothing is more effective for learning a foreign language than to live in close contact with a tutor who is specialized in teaching their native language in the country where this language is spoken! Spending an entire day in a family context, combining a few hours of “traditional” teaching to the many stimuli that daily life offers (TV, dining, walking) is the most natural and less stressful way to make progress in learning a language.
At Home in Italy Italian Homestays
How they work and how we work together
- Fill out the Homestay request form and indicate 3 Homestay teacher choices.
- I will contact the teachers to check their availability and send you a proposal with pricing for the Homestay. Each Homestay is slightly different as the locations of the teachers are pretty diverse. Depending on the length of the stay, the time of year, the number of hours of lessons, and the city, the price of the Homestay will vary.
- If you accept the Homestay and wish to move forward, I will finalize the details with the Homestay teacher.
- Simply pay the deposit via check or a Paypal invoice to Melissa.
- The balance due for the Homestay is paid directly to your Homestay teacher.
- Once the deposit is received, Melissa will put you in direct contact with your homestay teacher, and you can coordinate directly with your teacher the details of your stay. Often the teacher requests a Skype conversation to get to know you better.
