Dincan“We want your time studying English in England at Celc to be a great success, and your accommodation is as important as the time you spend at school.  It is my job to co-ordinate your accommodation and ensure that you are happy and comfortable with one of our host families.”
Duncan Barnet


Being in a home stay provides a good supportive environment, offers you the opportunity to really experience British life and culture, and gives you lots of extra opportunities to practise your English! Hosts treat you as a full member of the household, eating together and sharing common living areas.
We want you to feel very welcome and we choose our hosts carefully.


You can choose a single room, or a shared room (if you are under 25yrs) with another student of the same sex. We do our best not to put students with the same first language together, although during the busy summer months this is not always possible.


Your hosts will provide breakfast and evening meals – Monday to Friday, and three meals a day at weekends. We can also cater for special diets; please tell us about any needs or allergies when you complete your application form.


Your hosts will provide and wash all bed linen. They will also offer to wash one load of personal washing each week.


All our hosts are no more than an easy single bus ride away from the school and many are within walking distance. It is also quite easy to cycle to school and many students buy secondhand bikes while they are with us.

At additional cost and subject to availability we offer superior accommodation with private bathroom, TV, three course meal each evening, full laundry service and everything else offered in our homestay accommodation. Shared Executive Homestay is only available to couples.

Your accommodation is available from the Saturday before your course starts until the Saturday after it finishes.
