    Homestay Russia

    Download Application Form

    Homestay Russia. Russian Family Placement.Homestay with a Russian family is a great opportunity to get to know the people, the country and learn the language. Fill out the Questionnaire, forward it to us. We will find a family that matches your profile and put you in touch as soon as we can.

    As we do believe in authenticity of the experience, we honestly do not want the Homestay Russia applicants to expect any 'special' kind of VIP treatment: one will eat what the family eats, she or he will sleep the way the rest of the family members sleep. This absolutely does not mean, though, there will only be mats in a hallway or hopelessly dry pieces of bread with the WW2 casha left-overs...

    It also does not mean the issues of meals and accommodation can not be brought up. They can, but best if done prior to your placement, to see what the situation is, to see if the conditions are appropriate, not after the placement is complete and you are here, stuck with family that does not appeal to you.

    14 years and older, positive references
