Here are a few quotes from some of our valued homestay families:
“Our family has been hosting students in our home for awhile now. Last fall we had a wonderful young man come and stay with us from Brazil. He was kind, polite, made many friends and was respectful of our house rules. His family came to visit him and immediately we all got along and it felt like we were family even though they didn’t speak much English and we didn’t speak Portuguese.”
“Tomorrow will be a sad day when we drop her off at the airport and hug her goodbye for the last time. But tonight was filled with laughter and joy celebrating accomplishments and a long successful future she has ahead! We hope our paths will cross but for now we leave with the best possible conclusion we could offer.”
“This is the 2nd time that I have hosted. I was so skeptical about doing this. I was so stressed about taking on a student as I have 3 kids( 16, 21, 23)of my own. I have expressed my concerns to Tania and she has been so wonderful. When I first signed up, Tania knew I was hesitant and she kept telling me that she will help me along the way if I needed any help or concerns. I’m on my 2nd student now and it’s been wonderful. I haven’t had any issues at all. Tania has managed to pair us with students that have worked out for us. I am so grateful to her and all of her hard work. I am glad that Tania is always available if I need her. I feel like I have a peace of mind knowing that she is there if I need her. I know that being a coordinator can be stressful at times, there is so much work that goes into it.”
“The boys were absolute gems and we had such fun making memories that I will treasure forever! All of our international family got together on video calls over the holidays and Anna & Klaudia are celebrating together in Germany as well as Alicia, Serena and Ilvy are celebrating together in Slovakia which brings me so much joy…and everyone sends best wishes.
“Again, I thank you all so much for blessing me with Leo, Otavio and Mimi…I cherish this time with them.”
