It is hard to choose as we have so many good reports from students about their Eurolingua Homestay programs. Probably the best ones are when both the student and the tutor tell me that they have thoroughly enjoyed the program. That means that the program was a great success.
I would choose to go to St. Petersburg in Russia as I would love to visit the Hermitage or Irkutsk in Russia and I would like to visit Siberia. They are places I would love to see plus I could improve my Russian as I am a beginner.
Our company is unique because we make sure that each Homestay program is organized from the tutor meeting the student at the start of the program to the tutor returning the student to the airport at the end of the program.
I am especially proud of our team when they ensure that arrangements work smoothly for younger students and students with mobility problems. They make sure that all students know full tutor details and contact details, exactly where to meet the tutor and that students have emergency contact numbers for tutors and the Eurolingua Institute.
They also make sure that tutors know their student’s language, the student’s objectives for the program and have a current photo of their student. It is important to work with both student and tutor to ensure a successful Homestay.
Students choose their tutor, often based just on location, but should we feel the tutor is not an ideal match, we discuss this with the student before making a final placement. For example, the tutor may be in a 3rd floor apartment without a lift, or be in an isolated location, or unable to collect younger students at the airport.
Caring for our clients, organizing all arrangements for a program. Working with tutors who are qualified and experienced in teaching their language as a foreign language; who work professionally; and who enjoy hosting foreign students - often making friendships for life.
