많은 학생들이 홈스테이를 통해서 현지의 가족들과 생활합니다. 홈스테이는 뉴질랜드의 생활 문화와 영어 환경에서 생활하는 것으로 매우 유익한 체류 방법입니다.
홈스테이에 포함된 것:
- 1인 1실, 공부 책상
- 영어로 가족과 교류
- 월요일에서 금요일까지는 평일 2식(아침, 저녁), 주말과 휴일은 3식. 세탁 가능.
- 홈스테이 가족들이 통학 방법을 안내.
- 도착 전에 홈스테이 가족에게 학생 신상명세서 전달.
- 같은 국적의 학생이 같은 홈스테이 집에 체재하지 않도록 수배.
특별한 요청이 있을 경우에는 가능한 요청에 맞추어서 가족을 소개합니다.
12세에서 17세의 중고생은 주의 깊게 선택한 홈스테이 가족 밑에서 생활합니다.
