One of the most important aspects of a student’s study abroad experience is where he or she lives. Inlingua’s Student Services office is dedicated to finding comfortable accommodations for students who need housing. We only work with families who have been carefully selected after meeting our strict criteria. Students are placed with American families whose official language is English.
In addition to finding homestays, we pride ourselves on having highly trained staff who are dedicated to counseling students who wish to continue their studies at various American universities. Inlingua Washington DC maintains partnerships with several prominent universities, with new partnerships on the horizon. These partnerships help to streamline the admissions process for our students and allow for a smooth transition from language study to collegiate life. Our guidance and counseling extends to any issues that arise during the students’ adjustment to US culture.
