Should I Choose a Host Family or Hotel While Studying English in the U.S.?

When preparing to study English abroad in the States, there are a lot of different factors to consider, and where to stay is high on that list. Given the option of staying in a hotel or with a host family, which should you pick?

Host families offer a supportive living environment where you can get to a local family or individual, and immerse yourself in American culture. Living with a host family and taking part in activities with them provides the opportunity to practice your English regularly within the context of American culture. You’ll also have breakfast and dinner prepared for you daily.

Hotel stays, on the other hand, offer privacy for independent students who prefer having their place to themselves, or those going abroad with family. You can even opt for a hotel room with a kitchenette if you like to prepare all your own meals. Hotel stays can be a more expensive option than homestays but for some students, the private environment is worth the cost.

Still not sure which to choose? Take a quick quiz to find out which is right for you!

  1. I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for.

    Does one offer guest writers to write content to suit your needs?

    I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write about here.

    Again, awesome website!

  2. Hi there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a team of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community in the same niche.
    Your blog provided us useful information to work on.
    You have done a wonderful job!

  3. Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment
    form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

  4. Appreciating the time and effort you put into your site and detailed
    information you present. It’s good to come across a blog every once
    in a while that isn’t the same outdated
    rehashed information. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding
    your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  5. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours nowadays, but I by
    no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is lovely value sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners
    and bloggers made good content material as you did, the web will probably be
    much more useful than ever before.

  6. Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just
    sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still
    new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

  7. My family every time say that I am wasting my time here at web,
    except I know I am getting experience all the time by reading such pleasant
    articles or reviews.

  8. We’re a group of volunteers and starting a
    new scheme in our community. Your website offered us with valuable info to work on. You’ve
    done a formidable job and our entire community will be
    grateful to you.
