Why live with a host family?
Host families provide a great opportunity for students to feel truly immersed in the new culture and practice their language as they have to communicate with the members of their host family in Arabic when at home. They can establish a connection with a family away from home that can last a lifetime. They will also have a chance to gain deeper insight into the culture and learn about local Tunisians from a completely different perspective. All host families are screened by Center Sidi Bou Said, and we have a network of many trusted host families near the center. One or two students may stay with the same host family, though one is preferable to push students to speak Arabic.
The price per month includes two meals a day with the host family.
