EF Language Travel (LT) is a non-profit organization which encourages international understanding through cultural exchange.
The program provides the unique experience of living with a host family while participating in structured English language and cultural courses. Students are taught by qualified instructors, using EF's own curriculum and textbooks. (Classes are held at St Elizabeth's College in Morristown). Students also participate in special academic field trips, group discussions and organized afternoon activities.
Students are arriving on August 1 (the first night they sleep in NYC so they would arrive to the area on the 2) thru 20th (18 days) and the countries are: France, Germany, Spain, Italy, China and Hong Kong.
Host families may accommodate up to 4 students. Up to 3 people in 1 bedroom are allowed, provided that they are of the same gender and within 3 years of age of each other. Students may share bedrooms with host family siblings. Students must have their own bed, but do not need to have their own bedroom or bathroom.
Compensation: In addition to the stipend of $100 per student/week, the host family can receive a one-time $25 referral bonus for each host family they recommend to EF.
Host family must provide:
• 3 meals per day for the student (lunch should be packed) • Accommodation • Linen service • Laundry service at least once during the students’ stay • Transport to & from College of St. Elizabeth’s or EF’s school bus stops, typically drop off at 8:00-8:30am, pick up at 5:30pm, Monday-Friday • Spend time with students in the evenings & during weekends
• host families can be 2 parent or single parent households, of any age, can have children of any age or no children at all
