The English Language Institute (ELI) is looking for American hosts for international students studying English at the University of Delaware. Students do not live with their hosts. Rather, the ELI American Host Program is a friendship program connecting Americans with ELI students.  Hosts get together with their students to share social occasions, holidays, and  friendship.  Our American host families serve as language coaches, cultural facilitators, supporters, and friends as their student adjusts to life in the United States. International students who have hosts demonstrate improved language skills and easier adjustment to American culture than those who have little contact with Americans.

The American hosts benefit as well as they learn about the student, his/her culture, knowledge, and interests, and many of our students have maintained contact with their American friends long after they have returned to their countries.
