Students will live with local families in their homes. All families
are carefully screened and selected by AIFS personnel overseas.
The AIFS Local Organizer will use the information that students
provide on their AIFS housing form to place students with local
families. All students will have their own room, desk and a key
to the house. Daily continental breakfast and dinner are included.
The homestays will provide students with a place where they can
receive phone calls and mail, watch television, do homework and
in most cases, do their laundry. In addition, students will have
a link to the local culture and customs, including events and services,
organizations and medical services.
