Spark is connected to many families that offer places for students to stay during their trip in El Puerto. All hosting families we are in contact with would have a child of approximately the same age as the student(s) being hosted. Nearly all of our families have been working with us for years, and 95% of the homestay families send their own children to our language academies or bilingual school, giving the whole experience a genuine family feeling.
We will find a welcoming local homestay family with a double room, which will be shared with another student from the same group (it is also possible to get individual rooms for an additional price), usually the bathroom facilities are shared with other members of the family.
This is obviously the best way to make sure the students practice their newly acquired language skills as much as possible as these families usually don’t speak English, or if they do, they have been notified that one of their goals is to always speak in Spanish with the students. All the host families we are in contact with live very close to Spark and are in very good central locations so there is no need to worry about getting around.
