Host Families

Language Travel Tours welcomes caring host families who have a spare room for 2, 3 or 4 pupils at a time. 

Pupils are out in the daytime touring with their teachers, so the following is required:

* Drop off the pupils at 08h00 and collect them at 19h00 
* Provide full board accommodation (breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal)
* Spare beds as the pupils are accommodated in pairs (but can share a room)

ALL FAMILIES MAKE A GOOD HOST FAMILY...!  Single parents, families with children, empty nesters, retired couples and families with no children. What's important is a warm, welcoming spirit and the care you'd give your own family.

We have families in Stonehaven but also in surrounding areas such as Bervie, Catterline, Johnshaven, Gourdon, St Cyrus, Auchenblae, Laurencekirk, Newtonhill, Portlethen, Netherley, Montrose, Kingswells and Aberdeen.  Rural dwellings are fine too. 

Each stay is 4-6 nights long and is:

* fun and rewarding
* an educational experience for you and/or your children
* valuable extra income
* an opportunity to create long-lasting, international friendships
* life-changing for the students who come

Homestay Students, who come for 1 to 4 weeks and are taught by a qualified EFL teacher, can be accommodated in the wider Aberdeenshire area such as Ellon, Huntly, Aboyne, Alford, Keith, Insch   

Make a Difference by Hosting!

This is what one of our fantastic families Michelle Fraser said about hosting this year...."Just dropped off the last of my French students for the season. They have all been a joy! I learned a lot from them and (I think) they had a great time learning about the Scottish culture. It's an enriching experience, welcoming young students who you have never met into your home. Taking time to talk and gaining knowledge is a 2-way street. I feel uplifted and proud! And have improved my French too".
