Lodging & Arrival Information - Santiago, Chile  



It is highly recommended that students stay in homestays while attending their classes. Homestays provide a unique environment and allow the student to practice the skills they learn in class with their family at home. It also gives students a chance to integrate themselves in the Chilean culture. For these and many other reasons most students studying abroad will stay in homestays.

Homestay accommodations include breakfast and dinner during the week, and breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the weekend. There are many different types of host families and we will do our best to match each student with the best family for their needs.
Host Family Characteristics:
• All families are carefully screened and must meet the school’s stringent requriments before being accepted as a host family.
• All host families are middle-class and live in homes and areas that are attractive.
• The ages of children in the families range from a few years old to adults.
• Some homestays are without children.
• Distances from the study center vary from a few minutes walk to a 30 minute bus ride, due to the size of Santiago.
• Students have their own rooms and sometimes a private bathroom also.
• Students are free to come and go as they please, but need to respect the routine of the family they are staying with.
Other Accommodation
There are also numerous hotels available within a short distance of the institute. Hotels range greatly in price and the school can select one and reserve a room for the student according to his/her price range.

Apart hotels are very popular in Santiago and there are several not far from school. They normally include a bedroom, living room, bathroom and kitchen facilities. There are several excellent apart hotels within three blocks of the school with weekly rates that range from US $80 a night to $120 with discounts for monthly occupation.
