Since our school was founded in 1993, we have placed more than 20,000
students with local families. We know our families very well, and always
ensure that they are matched with suitable students. Our hosts all
provide a private bedroom, as well as a quiet, well-furnished place to
study. Although we always recommend homestay accommodation, we can also
provide apartments or student residences.

I am sure that all this experience in VEC will be useful for my professional development and I am really grateful for that."
