Stay with your teacher

By staying with a qualified language tutor, you, your child, teenager or family group can benefit from total linguistic and cultural immersion in a friendly home environment. Enjoy a combination of structured language lessons and conversational practice in everyday situations.

Total immersion through a teacher homestay means that whether your child is preparing for an exam or you personally are brushing up on your language skills for a professional qualification you have access to a uniquely intensive path to progress. Your teacher will assess your needs or those of your child and develop a personalised, one-to-one language course. So it’s not only a more targeted approach to learning but also a more economical one as there are no fees for a middleman.

And unlike a language school or teacher agency, you choose the teacher personally. Using Lingoo’s secure messaging system you can get to know your teacher first and then make all arrangements – including payments – directly with the teacher.

Hundreds of approved qualified teachers are registered with Lingoo. You can choose a teacher based on where you want to stay, shared interests – even diet or religion. Each Lingoo teacher has a personal profile that includes references and evaluations from students who’ve stayed on a homestay with that teacher. This all helps to avoid that terrible moment when you first ring the teacher’s bell and wonder who will answer, because you already know each other.  

Lingoo teachers

Lingoo teacher profiles are diverse. Some are full-time homestay teachers while others are school teachers with availability only during school holidays. Others are part-time homestay teachers and will explain their availability on their profiles. But all of them believe that learning a foreign language should be fun and full of the discovery that classroom settings simply cannot offer. They will help you learn and practise the language in everyday situations, in formal lessons or while indulging your hobbies. So it is always worthwhile choosing one with similar interests to your own.

Some teachers can also arrange to pick you (or your child) up at the airport or station and transport you there again when you return home.

Remember that Lingoo teachers go through a stringent validation process. Their identity and qualifications are checked personally by the Lingoo validation team before they can register with us. Together with references and visitor evaluations, contracts for each reservation, and support from the Lingoo team when misunderstandings occur, we ensure that your homestays are safe, secure and offer great value for money. The Lingoo contract is also there to help unaccompanied children pass through Immigration. Even your deposit is covered by our cancellation rules.   

In short, booking a homestay teacher through Lingoo is a totally immersive, fun way to learn a foreign language. And it will probably be an experience you will want to repeat. Click here to JOIN NOW.
