Do you know any overseas friends who would like to spend time in Manchester, studying English? 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.

Homestay in Manchester

Manchester is one of the UK’s most lively and exciting cities. With cultural events, world-renowned shopping centres like the Trafford Centre and the Arndale centre, and 2 top Premiership football clubs the city is buzzing.

Outside the centre of Manchester there is the beautiful Cheshire countryside, the moors and the Derbyshire Peak District, a network of canals to explore, and access to other exciting cities. Leeds, Liverpool and Chester are all within easy reach.

Benefits of a homestay in the UK

Staying in a hotel can be impersonal, but a homestay with an English-speaking family allows the visitor to get fully immersed in the language and culture of England. It can give the student’s English skills a real boost. La Academia’s host families are often linguists themselves and they understand the challenges that language learners face.

What’s included in the homestay

During the 2-week Manchester homestay guests will receive 30 hours of intensive English lessons.  In addition, they are fully immersed in the English way of life and English language during their stay. La Academia will help visitors with getting out and about – we can book tickets for events, for example. Also, if guests need any support at all our multilingual staff members will be happy to help.

So if you have friends abroad who want a little more from a stay in the UK, point them to a la Academia homestay! The contact details are: +44 (0) 161 491 1444 and
