Most families have been offering accommodation to our students for many years. They are very familiar with the typical problems and needs. Especially for our younger students, they are a valuable aid at the beginning.
The accommodation type „guest family with half board“ includes daily breakfast and a hot meal per day. We also have vegetarian guest families. The host families take at least 1 out of 2 meals together with the students.
The students have to stick to to the house rules of the respective family.
