The best way to learn English is in a family setting, with an English family – you are surrounded by the language and with the support of your host family you can make great progress.

La Academia offers homestays in Manchester – living in a family home, visiting Manchester’s sights and enjoying life in one of the UK’s most exciting cities. If you have any overseas friends who would like to study English in Manchester, please put them in touch with us!

Why Homestay in Manchester?

Manchester is one of the UK’s most lively and exciting cities. It offers cultural events, top-level sport with 2 leading Premiership football clubs – Manchester City and Manchester United, world-renowned shopping centres like the Trafford Centre and the Arndale Centre, and above all a lively, buzzing and youthful city.

Outside Manchester itself there is so much to explore – beautiful Cheshire countryside, the moors and the Derbyshire Peak District, and a network of peaceful canals. There is easy access to other exciting cities such as Chester, Leeds and Liverpool.

What are the benefits of a homestay in the UK?

A homestay with an English-speaking family allows the English student to get fully immersed in the language and culture of England. Compared to staying in a hotel, which can be impersonal and rather lonely, the experience of being with a local family can give the student’s English skills a real boost.

Why homestay with la Academia?

La Academia’s host families are often linguists themselves and they understand the challenges that language learners face. All our host families are friendly and welcoming and will do their best to make your stay fun, and to help you with your English.
