Become a Host Family – Have you got spare rooms in your house sitting idle?

Become a Host Family for The Linguaviva Centre, Dublin’s oldest English Language School Est. 1977.

We have students coming from many different countries looking to stay with Irish host families to immerse themselves in our culture and experience what it is like to be part of an Irish family.

The experience hosting students is very rewarding for students and our host families.  Students are always advise what to expect when being placed in host family and have very reasonable expectations of what to expect.  Students really enjoy the host family atmosphere and it really helps them with their English studies being able to chat with the families at meal times and share their experiences.

We have dedicated accommodation staff who are always there to assist our valued host families right from the booking stage all the way to the students departure.

Payment is always made on time in a prompt manner and excellent rates are available whether it’s one student staying on their own, or students sharing as part of a group.

Linguaviva has 40 years of experience and we always ensure that we match our students with our host families.  We do this by requesting a lot of information from the student during the booking process then matching it with our host family preferences on file in order to ensure that the experience for both the family and the student is a positive and engaging one
