TEFL Boston - CELTA Accommodation Options

We are continuously working with local accommodation providers to give you the best possible options for your course. If what you see here doesn't exactly suit your needs, then please give us a call or email us at info@teachinghouse.com and we'll help you find the best option for your budget. 

HOMESTAY 

Our homestay option is a bedroom at a home in the Boston area. The host may be a part of a family, a couple, or a single individual. Homestay hosts have different interests and careers and no two homestays are identical. Our staff visit every homestay we offer and interview every host.   

 

Homestays are ideal for CELTA trainees looking for an affordable accommodation option in a friendly, family environment. Often sharing with international students with a live-in host, homestays are not commercial "b'n'b" type accommodation. When considering a homestay host, we always make sure that the location is accessible via public transportation and no more then 50 minutes away from our school.
What to expect from homestay:
•Your own private room                                 
•Furnished with a bed
•Desk or study area
•Access to shared kitchen and bathroom
•Closet space or drawers
• Reasonable public transportation commute to our school
Rates: $330 per week for half board (breakfast and dinner).
