Are you looking for the best Homestay immersion experience in Germany?

The Nacel German summer homestay immersion in Germany offers teenagers the unique opportunity to experience the everyday life of a host family in Germany, while attending a local high school, like any other student. This immersion program, based in Germany, proudly represents the foundation of all Nacel language programs, as it offers the chance for a young person from abroad to improve his/her level of German. Language improvement comes from the constant immersion living with a family, as well as the student's interactions with classmates every day. 


•    Students will have the opportunity to live at a German Homestay, with High School integration, for a duration of 6 to 8 weeks. 
•    German host families are carefully selected, based on availability and the student’s interests, in order to look for the best match! 
•    Students will significantly improve their language in our 360 Cultural and Academic experience! 
•    Students will also be able to have a better understanding of the German culture and its educational system.
•    This program is available all year round (depending on holiday dates)


A minimum of one to two years of German language study is required.

Participants must show that they are mature enough to participate in the summer homestay immersion in Germany. The requirements are:

- Interest in learning about the German culture
- Deep desire to integrate with a different family and actively participate in their everyday life 
- Enthusiasm for improving language communication skills
- Willingness to make new friends
- Even though the student won’t be graded during the program, students need to demonstrate interest and effort during their High School classes.
For more questions about the application process, please do not hesitate to contact one of our education advisers. 


German host families are volunteers. This means that they are not paid to host the student. They are generally really enthusiastic and offer a warm welcome to the student during his/her homestay program in Germany. They look forward to share not only their language, but also their everyday life with someone who is eager to participate. We try as much as possible to match a student with a family who share the same interests, so you can’t choose any specific location.

Host families come from many social and economical backgrounds of life and may live in various locations (in a big town, in a small city, in a village or on a farm...). Wherever the student’s host family lives, there will be wonderful things to discover and absorb. Students can be placed anywhere in the country and must accept any location. It is very important for us to match the student 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.

The new family member is expected to take part in the daily activities of his or her German host family. Integration into the family is the ultimate goal of the German homestay experience. However host families are not required to organize activities, visits or excursions. The participant comes with its own spending money to cover the costs of activities during the immersion.

Please note that participants cannot choose a specific area in Germany. Nacel reserves the possibility to place the student anywhere in the hosting country. The location will mostly depend on the dates chosen.

Please indicate your preferred start and end date on your application form.

Students coming in July and August may not be able to attend school at all or full time because of school summer holidays. This applies to other school holidays in Germany (e.g. Autumn, Winter, and Easter holidays). Accurate dates on request (varies based on the school calendar of each Land).

Please indicate your preferred start and end date on your application form.

“I would like to keep you informed of Théo’s stay in P’s family in Germany. I think it has been the best host family Théo could have, really open-minded and generous as well as very kindly and attentive to him. Thanks once again for this homestay abroad. King regards, Sylvie.


“Thank you for your email. I can't even begin to explain how wonderful Kristi's experience has been. She had a wonderful host family who really went out of their way to show her their country and culture. She was able to meet most of their extended family, too. She is returning home this evening and she told me yesterday when I spoke to her that although she was so sad to be leaving her host family she is happy to be seeing us again. Thank you for all your help and assistance.” Kristi’s mother
