The Host Family Program provides an opportunity for students who are enrolled in The Language Company (TLC), an intensive English language center on our EIU campus to experience the American culture by living in an American home. 

TLC students who would like to be part of the Host Family Program pay $625 per month for room and board in an American home. 

For both families and students who are interested to participate in this program, please contact Chuck, the TLC-Charleston director at chadirector@thelanguagecompany.com or (217) 345-4020.
