What are the pros and cons of staying with a host family?
Here are some advantages you will experience with a host family:
1. Language immersion
Living with a Spanish family, rather than other international students, forces you to practice your Spanish every day. When you constantly hear Spanish at your language school, and then have to hear and speak it at home, your language skills will improve rapidly.
2. Cultural experience
Staying with a family will give you glimpse into how people really live in Spain. Host families will usually provide you with some of your daily meals, so you’ll get to eat local food. Families will also be able to advise you on aspects of living in Spain, like where to buy things, great local places to visit or popular local entertainment. Some host families may also include you fully in their family lives and invite you to places and events that you’d not normally get to go to, if you were travelling on your own.
3. Feeling of safety
If you are a young adult, who is travelling abroad alone for the first time, staying with a family may be easier than other types of living arrangement, because you won’t have to worry so much about cooking, where to do your laundry or other practicalities. It can make you feel a little bit less homesick too, if you’ve never lived outside of your own home before. Some students become good friends with their host families and stay in touch with them afterwards.
4. The financial side
A host family is often a financially worry-free choice, because the price includes rent, meals and a place to do your laundry. You’ll know exactly what you are spending on accommodation and your main meals, so that you can divert the rest of your spending money onto sightseeing, entertainment or shopping.
