AIFS provides excellent accommodations, activities, resources and staff to help students learn about and integrate into their host community.
The homestay experience can be the most rewarding aspect of your time abroad. Living with a carefully selected host family is the best way to learn Spanish and gain a unique insight into the local community and culture.
Apartments are a great choice for students who prefer to live more independently.
