The residences of our families are 3 or more blocks from the center. Buildings nearest to central park mainly consist of businesses or offices. Houses in the center are typically quite old, with small, damp rooms. Newer, fairly modern houses are in the perimeter of the town. We work with families that are in the business since the 90’s. They have accommodated their homes for the comfort and privacy of the students. Each family has its own rules and fees consequently the school only checks the quality of service and payment.
Regular service includes: seven days of accommodation. Three meals a day from Monday to Saturday, single room, shared bathroom with hot water. On Sundays and holidays (December 25th., January 1st., and Good Friday) there are no meals.
