Live with a homestay host family and learn their culture

Living in a homestay with a local family allows you to discover the country´s people, language, food, traditions, and more.

Homestay - Programs Abroad - EIL Ecuador


We select a family in the country of your choice with whom you can live from 2 to 4 weeks.

Taking part in a homestay program in a different country is much more than only room and board; it is an intercultural experience that combines different elements such as customs, people, language, food, traditions and many other aspects that are almost impossible to discover when someone travels through the country like a tourist.

If you are 18 or older, EIL Ecuador offers the opportunity to stay with a family in one of the countries where there is EIL (The Experiment in International Living) representation.

Where can  I  have my homestay experience?

Argentina, Chile, Canada, Germany, UK, France, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, and many more
