As an international visitor attending an English language school, college or university, or even if you are completing residencies and internships, the last thing you want to worry about is your accommodation. Global Immersions is Boston’s leading homestay provider with 24 years of experience.  We offer an engaging alternative to apartments, hotels, and dormitory-style living situations for visitors 18 years and older. Our Homestay options are designed to fit the budget and preferences of any visitor, with accommodation available for a week (minimum) or longer.

The Homestay experience is the perfect way to learn about U.S. culture, day-to-day living, and to practice your English in a non-structured environment. It has been proven that aside from English language lessons, interacting daily with English speaking individuals greatly improves your overall understanding. By working with hundreds of Boston area hosts, we are able to provide a beneficial and higher quality homestay experience for each and every visitor to our program.

Your comfort and experience are our number one priority.
