More English? Want a family with a basic grasp of English as a back-up? We can arrange this.

Typically we encourage you to use as much Japanese as possible in order to full extract as much as you can from your family but there are times when students prefer a little more English which is of course fine.


If I don’t want to stay in a homestay, what are my options?

Typically students who don’t stay in a homestay would select their own accommodation.

Do I get a house key?

Yes you do.

Is it a problem if I arrive home late?

As long as you show respect, be quiet, and don’t make loud noises then this is fine.

How do you decide who to pair me with?

The key is getting to know you before placing you.

We speak to you to get an idea of what makes you tick.

Your likes, your hobbies, your passions etc.

As we have a wide range of families all with different traits and hobbies, this allows us to make the perfect match.

Can I change my homestay if I am not happy?

You can yes, but speak to us and we’ll try and find a way to resolve it.

This rarely happens but if the situation is one that is best changed, we will be able to assist you.

Can someone come and stay over in my room?

No this is not possible.

Your host family would find this rude and disrespectful.

Will I receive information about my host family before?

Yes indeed.

We will send you an information pack to your email after the booking is complete.

Can I stay in a homestay and not book a Japanese course?

No unfortunately not.

Homestays are hugely popular and therefore specifically kept aside for our students.

Can I wash my clothes?

Yes of course.

All homestays have washing machines and everything you need to freshen up your wardrobe.

If you’re lucky, your homestay family may even do your washing for you!

Can I lock my bedroom door?

Yes you can.
