Standard Immersion Program


The Activity Immersion Program is one of the most popular Summer Group Homestay Programs offered by IFF. This program is typically 2 to 4 weeks in duration and gives each student the best of both worlds in maximizing time spent with the host family for a cultural experience while still offering some pre-planned program activities to share with friends in the group.

Main Features

  • Transfers between the local airport and destination community
  • Placement in a volunteer American Host Family that has been carefully recruited, screened, and selected by trained IFF professionals (host family contact information is generally provided 2-4 weeks before scheduled arrival)
  • Ample opportunity to learn about American culture while still having a chance to participate
  • Student and Host Family Orientations
  • One (1) full-day excursion per week (Student admission costs included; lunch will be provided for IFF students)
  • One (1) half-day group activity per week (Admission costs associated with pre-planned activities included)
  • Welcome and Farewell Parties

As with all IFF programs, the Activity Immersion Program also includes:

  • Supervision by trained and dedicated IFF Coordinators with intimate knowledge of the destination community
  • Insurance covering all program participants including students and volunteer host families
  • 24-Hour, 7-day-a-week support from the IFF Home Office
  • Support for obtaining tourist visa (if required)
