The Oui-Connect Experience

Enjoy The Experience

Host A Student For 3-4 Weeks

A host family offers the comfort and care to an International Student as a member of their family.​​​​​
International students will learn English through everyday interactions with their host families.​​​ This is a full immersion program and teenagers do not attend classes.
Thanks to host families, the young participants are fully integrated into the American culture. The teenager becomes a full member of your family.
Host Families come from ALL walks of life: With kids or empty nesters, different social backgrounds,  different homes,  being open-minded is the essence of our program.

Go Abroad!

Experience The World In A Whole New Way

Oui-Connect offers American teenagers short-term immersion homestays in Spain, Italy, or France. Anytime from June to August.

The homestay program has different options and ranges from 2 to 4 weeks. Participants (13 to 17) live and share the daily life of a volunteer host family. They improve their language skills while living a unique cultural and educational experience through 100% immersion.

Oui-Connect covers administration fees, travel authorization, travel insurance, and volunteer host family placement. We ensure personal contact for the participant and their family, from the registration phase to the end of the homestay.
