The time you spend with your host family will surely have a deep impact on your stay in Belgium. Your Belgian host family will welcome you with hospitality as you explore their country’s diverse traditions, beautiful arts, and neoclassical architecture. Many of the Belgian people consider their homes to be a very private retreat, thus welcoming you to join them represents a great honor.

With a 98% literacy rate, Belgium offers you top quality schooling to attend. Just as they are proud of their cultural and educational achievements, Belgians equally appreciate their delicious cuisine, which consists of various foods such as beef, cheese, fruit, vegetables, soup, and seafood.
