Stay with an English-speaking host or family in Oxford

Kheiron happily organises homestays in Oxford for students who would like to experience living with an English speaking host in Oxford. Homestays are an excellent opportunity to have further practice of communicating in English and to have the security of a safe and friendly place to stay.

The principal visits each homestay personally to make sure that the accommodation is suitable and meets the needs of our students. Each room has a bed, a place to put your clothes, a desk and a chair.

Included in the homestay is bed, breakfast and dinner every day and lunch at the weekends. The homestays are usually a house and occasionally an apartment.

For students aged 16 or 17, you must be home by 22:00 (unless your parent or guardian has requested in writing that you should be home before 22:00).

For students aged 18 and over, it is your choice what time you return home, but please be respectful and considerate regarding other people who may be asleep in the house.

Please tell us in advance (we will ask you to complete a homestay information form stating any allergies, medical conditions and food requirements when you book your course). We will not place you in a homestay with any animals.

If you choose the option of living in a homestay, they will treat you like a member of the family but you must tell them if there is anything you do not like eating. However, remember that part of the experience of living with an English speaking host in England is to try new things and to understand the culture!
