Almost all participants in the program stay with local families, which we arrange for you upon registration and with whom lodging is included in the cost of the program. Host families are highly recommended in order to practice what you learn in class with your family at home, as well as to integrate yourself into the local culture. Accommodation includes different meal plans, depending on what you prefer. Many different types of host families are available, and we attempt to select the best match for each student. All families are carefully screened and must meet NRCSA and the local center's stringent requirements before being accepted as a host family. All host families are middle-class and live in homes and areas that are attractive and safe. Some are single parent families, others are traditional families, still others are multigenerational. The ages of children in the families range from a few years old to adults, or homes without children. Students can choose to have their own room with or without a private bathroom, or to share a room with another student. Students are free to come and go as they please, but need to respect the routine of the family they are staying with.

NRCSA can also provide a list of several economical, reliable residence and apartments. Since most lodging is 30-60 minutes by bus or train from the school, it is recommended that students purchase metro passes.
