SOUTHPORT INTERNATIONAL have been running summer courses for 11 to 17 year-olds for nearly 20 years. Some of our hosts have been helping us from the start. We offer English lessons, local activities and day trips to other parts of the North West.
 The students usually come as a group with a leader or teacher. Some are given the opportunity to visit Southport or Liverpool on these courses on a scholarship for free or their course is subsidised. Our summer students start arriving from around 22nd June and the last students depart towards the end of August. You can choose which weeks you will host for however, we have shorter trips of 3 or 4 nights throughout the year if you want an easy way of trying out hosting however summer is our busiest time.
  Hosts provide a bed and meals for your student. We don't expect hotel standards. It is more important that you are friendly and make your student feel welcome and safe. Through the week they will go to college for lessons and activities then return to you for an evening meal. They will also attend a day trip on the Saturday which leaves you Sunday to spend some quality time together.

" We are a couple of pensionable age
who wanted to try hosting. We were a
bit nervous but were given help and
guidance which made our first year
memorable. Our very first student has
asked to stay with us again this year.
It's a pleasure being part of this scheme
 enabling us to earn a little extra money
while showing our students our beautiful
area, customs and way of life"
"We have been hosting students
 for 19 years! We really enjoy
having the students, it is very
rewarding, they are also good
fun and are very friendly to have
in your home. The extra money
is also useful for holidays and other
 additional items".

"We only started hosting last year and
we love it. Our kids really enjoyed meeting our students and keep in touch with them all the time on Skype.
