Do VEC homestays include meals?


Yes, all meals are included.  Dining arrangements vary among different homestays though, depending on the schedules of the hosts.  For example, some hosts prepare breakfast for their students but others might not be available at the right time.  Whatever the arrangements, food is always available for students.


What if I am hungry between meals?


Homestay accommodation is much like living in your own home.  If you are hungry, you can help yourself to something from the refrigerator.  You can ask your host family about this during the first few days of your visit, to ensure that you know what you can have and where it is.


Is it necessary to be home for meals?


Hosts do not usually mind their students missing meals, if they are informed in advance.  If you are not going to be home in time for a meal, you should tell your homestay family.  Never skip a meal without informing your hosts!


Will my hosts clean my room and wash my clothes?


Although some hosts do, they are not expected to clean for their students.  In Canada, most adult sons and daughters clean their own rooms.  Students in homestays are also expected to keep their personal space tidy.


Can I walk to school from my homestay?


Most Vancouver homestays are in quiet, family-oriented neighborhoods in the suburbs of Vancouver and North Vancouver.  Students usually take public transit to school from their homestays.  Traveling time can vary from 15 to 45 minutes.


Should I go to my bedroom after supper?


No!  One advantage of homestay accommodation is that you have a chance to practice your English and make new friends.  Try to get involved in whatever your host family is doing, whether they are playing cards, shopping, or washing the dishes.  You are here for an immersion experience, so jump in and have fun!
