Language exchange stay

It is carried out between two members of the community who send a family member for a period of time to learn another language abroad by living with another family. On a reciprocal basis, that family will, in turn, host a member of this family.


Who is this option recommended for?

Families with teenagers and/or young people

Families with teenagers and/or young people who want to organize language exchanges abroad for their children.

  • During school holidays.
  • During the school year to study for several weeks, a quarter, semester or academic year in another country.


Adults who are interested in language learning and want to organize a language exchange abroad.

Generally, for short exchange periods, it is highly recommended that the linguistic exchange is not simultaneous so the period of coexistence between the members is greater.


Exchange members of our community must have the following characteristics:

  • Interest in language learning.
  • Curiosity to know about other cultures.
  • Open-minded attitude towards coexistence with people from other countries.
  • Spirit of welcoming and hospitality.
  • "Enthusiasm"for teaching the native language.

Benefits of the organization and coordination of a language exchange stay with

Minimum cost. Language agencies that run as intermediaries are eliminated and therefore the costs of these linguistic immersion experiences can be reduced. See the item "Economic comparative".

The members themselves decide with which other community members they want to make the language exchange according to criteria of age, location, gender, hobbies, etc.

Flexibility in dates. Members agree to the dates and duration of the language exchange.

Assured linguistic immersion. Interest in the language exchange is mutual, which ensures the practice of the language by both parties. Exchange families host and integrate their exchange guests into their daily life, treating them as another family member while expecting to receive the same in exchange during his/her visit.

Assured cultural immersion. Both families agree to contribute to an environment of welcoming and hospitality. Activities, meals, customs, etc. can be shared with the exchange family, getting to know firsthand the culture of the country you are visiting. In addition, families may agree on particular excursions or activities for each exchange.

Economic comparative (3 weeks in England, for example)

Example: 3 weeks in England

(1) Based on the average prices of summer courses abroad of several agencies for 2015.

(2) We encourage learning through linguistic immersion with the families in their daily activities. Therefore, we consider that during the stay abroad you can take more advantage of the opportunity to learn from living together with your exchange friend and their family rather than attending theory classes in academies.

(3) Source: Europ-Assistance (broad insurance coverage: medical expenses, travel, liability, accidents, etc.)

(4) Source: average prices of several flight operators.

(5) It is considered that agencies propose three extra excursions (35€ average) to cover spare time at the weekends.

In the case of, this amount will depend on the agreement that is made between the families to cover excursions and activities.

(6) The same amount is considered in both cases, although coexistence in the family likely reduces the MyHOSTpitality member’s expenses.
