Advice from Past Homestay Parents:

“Make sure to be patient and spend time with your student just talking about their culture, home and family”

“This was a great first experience, my student was an excellent fit into our family”

“I am looking forward to hosting again, it was a great experience for my family”

“The staff was great, every time I was uncertain of something I was always given a clear direction or understanding which helped me tremendously”

“Don’t think of your student as a guest, think of them as a new friend and family member for life! We still keep in touch with all our previous students”
