Homestay

In the language immersion program all homestay families are carefully selected. The families working with us at ILERI all come recommended. We choose families close to the school so it is possible for students to walk to school. Students staying in homestay will be provided with a private room, breakfast, and dinner and also laundry service.

The family homestay option is intended for those students who want to maximize their learning—not only in terms of Spanish, but also Panamanian culture—by sharing in the daily life of a local family. The homestay families actively help students in the learning of the language and provide a unique opportunity to interact and experience the culture. You will learn Spanish in Panama.

The students need to send any particular requests they have for their homestay family. For our families it is not a problem to have students who are vegetarian or smokers. Our families are matched to the personality and taste of each of our students and this help you learn Spanish in Panama. Our families are one of the most important elements in successfully learning the language.
