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. The friendship which results from living as a member of a family encourages continued international communication and understanding.
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 homestay 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.

"I would definitely recommend this program. The family I stayed with was great! They were so kind and helpful. Celine was so helpful and I really could not have asked for a better experience! It was fantastic. My family was amazing and it was one of the best experiences I think I will ever have. I would do it again in a minute."
