What is homestay and how is it like?

Homestay refers to the type of accommodation where a student stays in a local family's home. One may be offered a room in the home while sharing common facilities such as the kitchen and lounge area with the host family.

Homestay can a culturally rewarding experience as you will not only be staying in a room, but also participate in the local family's activities and enjoy daily interactions with the family members.

Homestay providers are usually licensed by the government, and are carefully vetted by the schools to ensure that the homes are well facilitated and that the family members are decent with no criminal records.
