Host Families
The Language People applies careful consideration when recruiting Host Families. All Host Families are Garda Vetted. In the event that a student needs to move from a host family it will be done after discussing the reasons & issues that arise with parents, hosts and students. Host families are located around the Dungarvan area and travel distance will vary from Host to Host. The Language People do not place students of the same nationality in the same host family. There may, however, be a student of another nationality in the host family. The Language People select each host family and conducts house visits before students are placed with them. The Student is expected to treat all members of the host family with respect and not engage in antisocial behaviour. Students are responsible for any damages they cause in the Host family’s home. Should problems arise The Language People will aim to resolve them in the best interest of the Student, The Host Family, Parents and The Language People. Special Requests (e.g. regarding diet, pets, children) must be made at the time of booking.  There will be an extra charge for Special Dietary Requests to be paid directly to the host family.
