Homestays are not the most successful and comfortable option for adults.
First, homestays require you to sacrifice privacy.
Also, the comfort levels a host family offers are often lower than the ones our students are used to.
And third, quality cannot be guaranteed with a homestay…
It’s a myth that homestays will provide you with continuous exposure to the Spanish language.
Families are not paid to be Spanish teachers but to offer accommodation and meals.
And even if the host family DO want to help you with your Spanish, they won’t be able to do so in a professional way, so they might, unwillingly, give you confusing information.
