My HOST FAMILY was so nice and friendly. They were very active and did lots of things in nature. We also played darts, watched movies, and had great dinners together.

To VOLUNTEER in the French American International School and help people to learn Spanish was fun. I felt very comfortable because I could learn and practice English at the same time I could teach them about Spanish.

All classes have many CONVERSATION OPPORTUNITIES. The students come from lots of different countries. I didn’t expect I could see and have a chance to talk with so many people of different nationalities!

I really liked staying with my HOMESTAY FAMILY. I rarely felt homesick due to their kindness and the cozy atmosphere they created.
