Why become a host family? Cultural Exchange  Hosting an international student provides a unique opportunity for cultural exchange. It allows your family to learn about different traditions, customs, and perspectives, fostering a greater understanding of the global community. Building Lifelong Connections Hosting a student often leads to the development of lasting friendships and connections. The bond formed during their stay can create a sense of extended family and open the door to future visits or even reciprocal stays abroad. ​Enhancing Language Skills  Living with an international student creates an immersive language-learning environment for both your family and the student. This helps improve language skills and promotes effective communication. ​Global Perspective  Exposing your family to a different culture broadens your worldview. It encourages open-mindedness, tolerance, and a more inclusive perspective, which are essential qualities in our interconnected world. ​Supporting Education  By becoming a host family, you contribute to the educational journey of an international student. Your support can significantly impact their academic success and personal growth during their time abroad.
