Homestay placement with Kiwi families for students and visitors to New Zealand

HFNZ welcomes young and mature students or visitors from around the world to New Zealand.

Our students experience life as part of a Kiwi family, learn English in a caring environment, and have a home away from home. Our hosts are excited to welcome someone new into their lives. We aim towards a suitable match between homestay hosts and their guests worldwide and promote the idea of cultural exchange through the homestay.
