Judy and Terry 

Terry and Judy have been hosting students exclusively for TIS since 1975! Although both their children have grown up and left home, Judy continues to meet new students and is as enthusiastic today as she has ever been. Hosting students has been so positive for the family that their daughter, Claire, is also a homestay family for TIS.

Matilde and John 

Matilde and John live in a large Victorian villa and have been hosting for TIS since 1990. Matilde came to Torquay in 1982 as a TIS student and met John here. As a form student herself she can understand how it feels to be a student in a foreign country. Over the years the couple have made many friends who come back to stay with them time and time again.
