EF Host Family Brisbane

Every year a large number of international students travel to Brisbane on a language course with EF. Located along the lazy Brisbane River and a short distance from the coast, Brisbane’s surroundings are quintessentially Australian and that is exactly why the students travel here. They come to Brisbane to immerse themselves in the local culture, create new friendships and improve their English skills.

During their time abroad they are looking for a safe and comfortable home away from home and for years our host families in Brisbane have been providing them with exactly that. Join the host family Brisbane program and get a unique, rewarding, fun and educational experience for all members of the family.
