One of the best ways to learn more about the people of England is to choose homestay (or private home*) accommodation. Family life is informal and the people are welcoming, friendly and talkative, so you will have plenty of opportunities to practise your English. All homestays (or private homes*) are carefully selected and visited regularly to ensure consistently high standards.
All our homestays / private homes in the Wimbledon area are located within a 30-45 minute travel time by foot, bus, train or tram. During the off peak season there is a larger selection of homestays (or private homes*) within walking distance. These cannot be guaranteed. Homestay (or private home*) accommodation includes breakfast and dinner 7 days a week.
*In a private home, you can expect to meet a number of other students of different nationalities.
Having chosen a homestay or private home suitable for you, details will be sent to the hosts and we would suggest you make contact with them to confirm your arrival time. You will have a light breakfast and evening meal every day.
In CES Wimbledon homestay / private home accommodation is on half board basis.
"Homestay - The hosts treat the student as a full member of the household, eating together and sharing the common living areas; no more than four students will be accommodated in homestay accommodation at any one time (homes accommodating more than four adult students are described as private home accommodation)."
"Private home accommodation - Accommodation in a private home for adult students (over 18 students); more than four students may be accommodated in the home; there may be less direct contact with the host(s). (Private home accommodation is not suitable for under-18's.)"
