2018 San Diego January Homestay Programs

2, 3, or 4 weeks English in San Diego + Homestay + Optional Southwest Trip 

This San Diego ESL camp is offered in both the summer and winter and is an excellent opportunity for students to continue improving their English skills outside of the classroom setting: CISL San Diego English camp students experience full U.S. cultural immersion while living with an American host family! The San Diego English Homestay programs for teens allow students to attend courses at CISL San Diego in January while living in the warm, welcoming home environment provided by carefully selected host families.

By day, students participate in CISL’s Standard English Program and interact with students from around the world. The Downtown CISL San Diego campus and USD are well connected by SD Transit, centrally locates students for afternoon activities. San Diego ESL homestay students can take full advantage of CISL and USD activities such as laser tag, trips to the San Diego Zoo, beach days, surfing, indoor rock climbing, and biking . . . and then come home to a meal provided by the host family. Breakfast is also provided for students every day.

Students of CISL's San Diego English program for teens are also offered the optional one-week Southwest Trip, which provides the chance to see some of the most popular destinations in Southern California, Nevada, and Arizona. While exploring Los Angeles, San Diego ESL camp students tour unique Venice Beach, celebrity-filled Rodeo Drive, picturesque Santa Monica, iconic Hollywood, Disneyland, and exciting Universal Studios.
