“EF Chicago” at the Commercial Table
February 11, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
EF Chicago is a division of EF Education First, a global company seeking to open the world through education. Our Chicago school provides English language training to non-native speakers from over 30 countries. As part of our mission to extend linguistic and cultural education beyond the classroom, EF Chicago has created a thriving Host Stay program. Our Host Families are as diverse as our student population, which is one of the program’s greatest strengths. We look for families who can fully represent the many types of people, cultures and lifestyles found here in Chicago. Our greatest concern is finding families who are warm, caring and willing to welcome and share their home and culture with our students. We provide all our Host Families a stipend for housing our students, but we seek to make hosting rewarding in a multitude of non-monetary ways as well. Time and again we hear from our Host Families how mutually rewarding the experience of welcoming an International Student has been. Our goal is to make sure that our Home Stay Program promotes cultural exchange in a way that benefits our Host Families as much as it does our students.
