Your Spare room: A window to the world
Centre of English Studies is a family run business that has been a significant contributor to the local economy for almost 30 years. Host families are an integral part of the CES experience and as well as the many benefits afforded to the hosts themselves, this gives students an all important overview of modern British culture.
As a child growing up in Worthing I was lucky enough to share our family home with international students from all over the world, who were studying at CES. Global travel, family life and British culture were all regular topics at the dinner table and this gave me a unique insight into other nationalities, languages and countries.
When my two older brothers moved away from home my Mum thought it a waste to have empty rooms, so decided to host students as a way to not only generate some extra income but also, and more importantly, to give us the chance to experience different cultures, languages and to broaden our horizons.
In 2017 CES welcomed over 4500 students to Worthing, and with an average spend of at least £250 per student this resulted in over £1.1 million injected into the Worthing economy!
The world is a constantly changing place but one thing that hasn’t changed that much is how we, as human beings, interact on a personal level.
Why not open your doors and show the world the warmth and hospitality that the British way of life has to offer?
Be an ambassador for your country and earn some useful income from your spare room!
