One of the best ways for students to improve their English speaking is to choose homestay accommodation. Family life is informal and the people are welcoming, friendly and talkative, so you will have plenty of opportunities to practise your English. All CES homestays are carefully selected and regularly visited by our Accommodation Officer, to ensure consistently high standards.

Our Edinburgh homestays are located across many areas of the city, with a maximum travel time of 40 minutes from the school (and a typical travel time of 20 minutes). Homestay accommodation includes breakfast and dinner 7 days a week.
