Students live with Indian host families in New Delhi for approximately eight weeks. Most families live in relative close proximity to the SIT program center.
Homestay families are primarily from the middle and upper-middle class and are from a range of professional backgrounds. In living with a family, students have numerous opportunities to practice their new Hindi language skills and learn about everyday life and family expectations. They typically have the chance to visit the temple or mosque with their host family and learn how to cook Indian dishes. In the fall semester, lucky students may be invited to attend an Indian wedding.
Other accommodations during the program include ashrams, guest houses, hostels, or small hotels.
