Here at Optima we aim to make every student’s time with us as comfortable and welcoming as possible. We put great emphasis on the security and well-being of our students and they are monitored throughout their stay by a member of our welfare team. This is why we recommend that they stay with one of our carefully selected host families, giving them a unique insight into the English way of life and an extra chance to practice the language too!
Host families provide breakfast and an evening meal, and at weekends they provide students with a packed lunch.
Should more mature students wish to stay in a hotel or guest house, we can arrange this on their behalf.
