Host Families

Becoming a host family with Ardmore 

A host family is one of the best ways for our students to learn English and our goal is for them to achieve the best learning experience, a “taste of the British way of life”, whilst in a safe and welcoming family environment. Our students come from a range of countries, backgrounds and cultures and stay for periods ranging from 1 weeks to 1 year. British Council student’s room requirements are as follows:
