Acadia Center lunches and dinners are hosted by teachers and/or dinner hosts, all native English speakers, so every meal also provides great opportunity for English conversation practice.
On the weekends and on Wednesday nights you can sample some of the many local restaurants offering everything from lobster to fine Mediterranean cuisine to spicy Mexican food to pizza.
Self-serve breakfast seven days per week is included in the standard accommodation plan. Just let your hosts know what you like for breakfast and they will make sure it is in the kitchen for you every morning.
The standard accommodation plan, which is included in the course package, is a private room in a family home near Acadia Center. Each room has a comfortable bed, a desk or table, chair, and lamp, a dresser and/or a closet. Students share a bathroom with no more than two other students or hosts.
Most students prefer the value and opportunity for English conversation practice in the standard accommodation plan. However, if you prefer to stay in a hotel or bed-and-breakfast, you are welcome to book your own hotel room and we will discount your course fee by $200 per week.
