Homestay and School Immersion in Ireland : Description

Live in an Irish family! The Nacel English homestay immersion in Ireland offers teenagers opportunities to experience the everyday life of a host family in Ireland. This immersion program in Ireland proudly represents the foundation of all Nacel language programs, offering the chance for a young person from abroad to improve his/her level of English. Language improvement comes from the constant immersion in a family.

Homestay and School Immersion in Ireland : Accommodation

The student is hosted on a full board basis by an Irish host family.

Irish host families are paid. They are generally really enthusiastic and offer a warm welcome to the student during his/her homstay program in Ireland. They are also eager to make discover their way of life to the student during his/her Irish immersion, and will want to know about his/her life in his home country.

It is very important for us to match the students with the host family, so this is what will determine the location of the student. Nacel's coordinators select the host families and are available to answer questions and handle any student/host family concerns during the program.

Homestay and School Immersion in Ireland : Testimonials

My experience in Ireland will be something I always remember. I can say that I was a bit afraid to travel so far and leave my family behind, I was facing a new adventure. As the days passed, I overcame these fears. At first it took me some time to understand the accent and I have to tune my ear, after a few days I could understand the accent, I was able to improve my English and meet many people.

The people in Ireland are very kind, my family behaved very well with me, they made me feel at home, I discover amazing places with my family, the time I was here I had fun. I knew and learn a lot, in the school, I took very different subjects from the ones I received at my school in my country which made me not get bored. This experience helped me to grow and discover another culture. I would definitely like to come back.
