FORT WAYNE, Ind.—ELS Language Centers, on the campus of Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW), is looking for families to host international students attending ELS.

This is a unique opportunity for American families (this includes empty nesters, singles, and married couples) to not only learn about other countries, cultures and languages, but to also share your own. Students request families from anywhere between one month to one year. Experience the world without leaving the comfort of Fort Wayne. A world of opportunity awaits you at the doorstep of IPFW.

In order to offset costs for food and utilities, a generous stipend is offered per student/per month.
