Please note there is a £20 per week summer supplement for all homestay bookings for the months of July and August.

One of the best ways for students to improve their English speaking is to choose homestay 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 CES homestays are carefully selected and regularly visited by our Accommodation Officer, to ensure consistently high standards.

Our Edinburgh homestays are located across many areas of the city, with a typical travel time of 40 minutes from the school (and around 20 minutes to the city centre). Please note that travel times maybe considerably longer during peak weeks (for example during the Edinburgh Festival). Homestay accommodation includes breakfast and dinner 7 days a week.

There will be a maximum of 4 students per family at any one time.

Please note that during peak season an external accommodation agency may be used for homestay students travelling in groups.
