We’re delighted to host a guest post from our friends at Kaplan International English. We work with them all year round and have done for a number of years. As they continue to grow, they are looking for more families to host students as they visit. Brian tells us more….
With summer just around the corner, who wouldn’t want a bit of extra money? The ever increasing cost of living in Cambridge the necessity of having extra cash is ever growing. You could try getting a second job, or maybe clearing out your house at a car boot, but why not make money on what you already have? I’m talking about that spare room you have upstairs, the one you are “saving” for your son/daughter who has long gone off on their own path.
With a quick clear out, a second bed, and a few necessities you are ready to start taking International Students. At Kaplan International English, we are always looking for new host families to join our team and open their home to the world. As one of the largest providers of English Education, our expert staff is available 24/7 to get you started as a host family.
Our families are able to meet students from: Brazil, Latin America, Central America, Africa, Asia, Europe, The Middle East, and every other corner of the world. What may have once been an empty home, has become a vibrant hub of international culture. No 2 days will ever be the same once you start taking international students, and you can count on having exciting and enriching conversations for your family.
Now the experience of hosting is great, but the best part is the money. We are looking for families with single rooms, twin rooms (2 beds for 2 students), and even en-suite accommodation. The payment will be based off the room that you offer. Our students arrive every week of the year, but the busiest time is the summer. To make having students worth your while during the summer break, we pay a very generous rate.
We will also be running a Summer Centre in the heart of Cambridge for our Kaplan Teens Program. These students are aged 14-17 and will be in Cambridge from the 9th of July until the 20th of August. The rates would also reflect the increased responsibility of having younger students.
Hosts will need to have an Enhanced DBS check done on them by the school (the cost will be taken from the first homestay payment), or have an existing check from another provider (done within the last 3 years).
