My HOST MOTHER is a good teacher, too! After school, we usually talk to each other. And she is an excellent cook. She always fixes different dinners for me. I feel really fortunate to have such a wonderful homestay experience.

I liked the INTEGRATED SKILLS class because it was fun and we always talked and talked and talked about different topics. It was very interesting.

Since I came here, I’ve experienced many kinds of VOLUNTEERING. All are great memories. I really appreciate the school staff’s kindness.
