Host students from LAL London

Why not host an international student this summer?

For over 30 years LAL has been working with host homes to offer comfortable accommodation, a warm welcome, and a taste of the British way of life to international language students. It can be a fantastic experience for both students and families, as well as being a great way to earn a little extra money from your spare room.

LAL runs excellent English language courses that are accredited by the British Council.  We work with a homestay agency which is currently looking for Hosts to provide homestay accommodation to international students for our school in London. LAL London opened in 2010 and we can teach up to 200 students at a time, almost always adults, at our school in Twickenham.
