Peumulia Jamee literary means 'to serve guest', which is a principle embraced by Acehnese people. During this conference, we offer a free homestay where some presenters (especially local/international students and young lecturers) can stay with the host family for a few days and they can have the opportunity to experience local culture and customs. The homestay program may not include meals and other activities as part of the experience, but they will help you to get your needs in a local shop.
These programs are organized by the conference committee through our students. Everything in the house is likely to be shared, such as bathroom, kitchen, internet if there is any, gas, electricity, washing machine, etc. You should also cover your own transportation. You can use GoJek or Grab to get you around in Banda Aceh.
Your hosts are undergraduate and post-graduate students majoring English Education Department at Universitas Syiah Kuala. They live in Banda Aceh and Aceh Besar where it takes no further than 30 minutes to the conference venue from the homestay location.
We advertise this program to our students who complete the form stating their intention to host students from other provinces/districts. The conference representative checks the condition of their house or apartment to ensure that the bathroom is clean, electricity and running water are working, the environment is safe, and there is enough space to host guests.
During your stay, you will live in a family or friend environment. The students who host you will treat you as friends. All our students who provide a free homestay under this Peumulia Jamee program are Muslim; therefore, you will not be able to consume non-halal food or alcohols, and you will be placed in a homestay of the same sex.
