Australian Immersion

An Australian Homestay experience is an ultimate way for students to appreciate the culture, English language integration and a full “taste” of Australia. All families are carefully selected and their homes are inspected by our trained staff.

Living with an Australian family provides a safe and secure environment plus a daily English learning experience. It’s the perfect way to improve your English conversation skills and immerse yourself in the Australian way of life in a safe, friendly environment.

Our Homestay families are linked to your Study Tour program and live in close proximity to your study location. As a Homestay student, you enjoy being included as part of the family and learn to become more independent during your time in Australia.

As a Trinity family, we feel incredibly fortunate to have had Japanese homestay students through Tyler International, from Reitaku (Tokyo and Mukogawa High School, in our home over the past four years. Not only is it a tremendously unique cultural experience for your own family, it is also incredibly rewarding to know that you have contributed so positively to young Japanese students’ Australian experience. We have found all of our Japanese Homestay students to be very polite, helpful and kind. Often, this is their first time away from home and absent from their families. Providing them with a warm and welcoming Aussie environment for them to come home to each day means more to them and their family, than words can express. Prior to committing to a Homestay student for the very first time, we had all agreed as a family that it would be a lovely thing to do. From our perspective, we never looked back once we became involved and saw what a wonderful experience it is for everyone involved.

The initial arrival of our homestay students is always interesting and viewed with great anticipation, not to mention a great learning experience for all concerned – for the student and especially for our family in general. Not only do we exchange cultural values but we love to share our home and amazing Gold Coast City. We have also had the pleasure of hosting some teachers and leaders who are here to look after their own students in our City through Tyler International’s programs. We find them extremely fun and very entertaining. Some of our fondest memories is also of our youngest homestay students who were only 11 years old. They were so helpful and cute – such a fantastic experience.
