  • In-house Homestay Coordinator
    AICOL English School employs its own Homestay Coordinators and does not rely on an outside placement service so we are always immediately available to assist with homestay matters.
    AICOL  host families are carefully selected to provide quality home life and as we enrol many young students into our English language courses we require all host families to hold a police clearance Blue Card for child-related employment.  Our coordinator personally inspects all host families accommodation.
  • AICOL Gold Coast Homestay Services
    Students are provided with their own room and three meals a day, seven days a week.
    Transport to and from AICOL can be arranged if requested for a small additional charge.
    Door to door airport transfers can be arranged including unaccompanied minor arrangements.
  • Conversation Practise
    Gold Coast host families provide an excellent opportunity for conversation practise to help you to quickly learn  to speak English fluently.   Our host families welcome English language students from all over the world and the homestays are experienced in assisting their students to study English in a safe and friendly environment.

Note:
Homestay families are not necessarily Caucasian in a multinational Australia. You may see homestay families who have migrated into Australia and live as first generation or second generation Australians.  They are required to speak English at all times to the students. The structure of the families is diverse including sole adult and with or without children. Many Australian families have pets.  Please consider these facts when applying for homestay.

Testimonial

I am writing to let you know that the GABRIELs has kindly brought my son Peiyu to the airport and he arrived in Narita safely on time.

Thank you very much for your help for Peiyu. From the beginning you paid extra attention to organising English study and homestay for him despite our poor English.

Also I apologise for the trouble Peiyu caused when he has fallen sick during homestay.

We are very happy that Peiyu enjoyed 3 weeks stay in Australia and made a lot of good memories.

His homestay family the GABRIELs was so kind to him and treated him as their own. So much so that he even told us he did not want to go back to Japan. When he called the host mother Christine after coming back to Japan, he could not help but crying. Due to our language problem we have not been able to tell the GABRIELs how grateful we are. Could you please send our gratitude to them?

It was his first time to spend time in a foreign country by himself and he met a lot of nice people. We are certain that this experience added a memorable and colourful page to his life and will bring numerous benefits to his future.

Thank you again Tomoko san, AICOL teachers, staff and especially the GABRIELs.

Yours sincerely,    ZHOU     2015
