About Our Hosts


Homestay hosts at AHN are carefully selected to ensure that our students are placed in environments that are not only safe and comfortable but also welcoming.

Our hosts come from many cultural backgrounds and are truly interested in enjoying a shared cultural experience with their students.

We conduct national background checks, in-home interviews, and complete home inspections. We stay in contact with both the host and the student during the homestay period.
