integrate into American culture

IQ USA is a division of ICES

Students participate in 8 to 10 hours of English and Cultural studies per week and can fully immerse while shadowing with American students in a typical school day. Evenings and weekends are spent with the host family, giving students a chance to practice their English skills and integrate into American culture.

Our host families are waiting to share their American customs while they learn about their student and culture. Host families are screened with criminal background checks and in-home interviews. A full immersion program as students practice their English, live and breathe the American way of life!
