Our students want to experience life as part of a Canadian family. To learn English in a caring environment, to have a home away from home. Our hosts are excited to welcome someone new into their lives. They want to learn about another culture, and to see their own culture in a new light through a foreign visitor's eyes.
Having an international student in your home takes time, patience, and a willingness to share. There are lots of differences to overcome, both cultural and personal, but learning about these differences and celebrating them is part of the joy of welcoming someone new into your home - and, in many cases, making a new friend for life.
