Student Life

Participants are offered the chance to meet people their age for three or four hours per week.

The peer tutors are expected to speak only the local language.

Participants live with local host families.

All families are screened, selected, and monitored by local American Councils' staff. They provide two meals per day; and participants are guaranteed private rooms and telephone access.
