a UIS Homestay or Residence?
Urban International School has its own accommodation system. Students have two options for accommodation: homestay or student residence, which helps students feel comfortable and safe in the Canadian society. It is a perfect option for students who are away from home.
UIS homestay specialist monitors and inspects each home to provide good quality and safety. There are several benefits of living at a UIS homestay. A host family supports and ensures students can concentrate on their school life and accomplish successful academic results. In addition, students experience Canadian culture such as the Canadian food, the lifestyle of a Canadian family and they can improve their English skills.
I had such a good experience staying at UIS homestay and learning about different cultures which is Canadian ways of living. Also, The host family was amazed and I felt really connected with the host family. I still keep in touch with the host family even though I came back to my home country. I highly recommend the program to everyone!
In my homestay where I am living right now, they have a great attitude, an effective schedule for everyday, every moment. They are also really kind and hostpitality, and will help me when ever I need. In there, I can have more chances to meet different students from different countries, different culture, with different point of view. The house was very comfortable and spotlessly clean.
