During their stay in Cuenca, students live with an Ecuadorian family, speaking Spanish and experiencing the hospitality of Latin American culture firsthand. Only one foreign student is placed with each family.  Students of Spanish will be housed with families that speak only Spanish, while students in courses taught in English may request families in which some English is spoken.  This group of families has been housing students since 1985, and has been central to the program's success. Most students keep in touch with their Ecuadorian families throughout the years, and many return to visit.

During the extensive In-Country Travel hotel accommodations will be provided.
