VALPARAISO | Valparaiso University is seeking host families for students studying English at its Interlink Language Center. Home stays range from nine weeks to one year.

Interlink Language Center provides international students with English as a Second Language training, cultural orientation and academic preparation as well as help with university placement and conditional admission to ensure a successful and memorable educational experience in the United States.

Host families must live in Valparaiso to accommodate transportation needs. Home stays are for international students age 18 to 24. Students pay a fee to host family to cover a private room, board and transportation ($670 per month). After gaining English proficiency and strengthening their academic skills, most of these students go on to study at American colleges and universities before returning to their countries.
