Language exchanges with host family homestays for students

PDM Tourism Group has been organizing homestays for American students & youths in Europe for more than 20 years.
On homestays, students live with a host family for a cultural and language immersion experience. For a successful language learning program abroad, the right environment is a pivotal factor. The approach to different ways of life in a family context is part of PDM’s company philosophy.

Homestays with host families will become a key experience for exchange students. By opening their doors to foreign students, host families demonstrate the hospitality of their country among other things.
On the other hand, host families will receive a personal insight into the home country of the exchange student staying with them.

Discover foreign languages and cultures with homestays

The central concern of PDM is with the Europe-wide organization, mediation, support and implementation of homestays for exchange students and youths. Language travel and language holidays on a homestay are thus guaranteed to become a memorable experience. During homestays, school exchange students and youths spend time with European host families.

That way the young exchange student guests receive a unique insight into the culture and language of the respective country. Through this cross-cultural exchange young people will benefit from intercultural understanding and prejudices will be put aside. People learn to get to know each other and new friendships for life are established. The exchange students and youths have the unique opportunity to get to know European family culture. In addition, on a homestay a student’s language skills in the respective local language will improve.

Become a host family

Of course host families benefit from a homestay as well: you will have exciting new experiences and will learn about the home country and culture of your exchange student guest. For your child, a three-day language exchange student homestay is a unique opportunity to make new friendships and to broaden his or her horizon. Our host families as well as our school student travelers undergo a high standards selection process before being assigned to one another.
