We recommend homestay as the best way to experience British life and to practise English.

This is an excellent way to meet local people and practise your English.
At LTC Eastbourne, we are proud of our homestay providers and the positive feedback they get from students. Our homestay officer visits all our homestay providers regularly to make sure:

  • Our homestay providers give our students a warm and friendly home
  • They treat students as part of the home
  • The house is clean and comfortable with adequate heating and lighting
  • There is always privacy from members of the opposite sex

Our homestay officer will also make sure your bedroom will have:

  • A comfortable bed
  • Sufficient hanging and drawer space for your clothes
  • A table, chair and lamp for studying (if this is not in the bedroom, you can use another table in a suitable room)
  • The room will be clean and you can have fresh bed linen and towels every week

All adult students have a single room (unless you ask to share with a friend), and we guarantee that you will be the only person who speaks your language in the house (unless you ask to be with a friend).

Students on Young Learner courses usually share. Students who come to LTC as part of a group will normally be put in the same homestay accommodation as another student from their group.

Food at your accommodation

Our homestay accommodation for adults is normally half-board, which means your host will offer breakfast and your evening meal every day. On Saturdays and Sundays, your homestay provider will also offer lunch.

For health and safety reasons please note that it is not possible to use the cooker or oven in your homestay. If you need to use any electrical equipment please speak to your host first.

On school days, adult students can buy lunch at the school. Lunch prices start from £3.50 for a sandwich or £5 for a hot meal. Young Learners will have a hot lunch at the school during the week as part of their programme so there is no additional fee.
