Why not host an international student this summer?
For over 30 years we have been working with host families 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 are currently looking for Host Families to host international students for our school in Torbay. LAL Torbay opened in 1984 and is now one of the most successful language schools in Torbay. We can teach up to 800 students at a time, both adults and children, at our school in Paignton. Our busiest times are Easter and the summer.
