**For the Homestay Program + school visit, there will be an extra cost of 40€ for the school enrollment.
All of our host families are carefully selected by AIPC Pandora which personally visits the family and meets all the members.
A host family is always a family with one or more children, usually of the same age of the host student.
Our families are now as modern as in any other western society, where women have jobs outside the home and life is fast and dynamic.
Our families can be located either in big cities or in towns, always with easy access to schools and services by public transport. In AIPC Pandora we do not discriminate against applicants or hosts based on race, religion or ethnic background. Students always have a single room with shared bathroom and other common spaces (e.g. living room).
In order for the homestay to be successful, both sides have to work on their relationship. Most of the families that participate in our program have been hosting exchange students for a long period and all of them work according to our Homestay Code of Conduct which collects all the principles and standards necessary to offer the students a global learning experience.
After having interviewed the participants, the Agent must send to AIPC Pandora the application form, completed with all the details of the participant, letter for the host family, pictures, medical report and duration chosen. All the applications must be sent to AIPC Pandora at least 3 months before the program starting date.
Once AIPC Pandora receives the application form and the participant’s details, we will start matching between our families and students.
AIPC Pandora will send the family details and info sheet to the Agent as soon as the matching is completed and no later than one month before the program starts.
Our native teachers are not only experts on the language, they are specialized on different fields as well, such as: history, economics, social science, theatre, anthropology, arts, and politics, thus providing an integral learning experience beyond the language.
We offer courses in Madrid and Valencia. The costs for group classes start at 22€ for 4 hours a week, for those staying longer than 8 weeks. Private lessons start at 25€/hour.
