The Feedback from the Host Family
It was beneficial for us as we also got to practice our Japanese with our guest, The guest, while teaching her English. We also learned more about Japanese schools in general, which was great as my wife is a teacher. Lastly, we got taste and learn about a delicious dessert!
She stayed overnight, and I think we were able to spend our time together effectively. We tried to teach her English that she can use every day. Moreover, we tried to encourage her to use English more as it is the best way to learn.
She was the perfect guest. She was very polite and quite fun to be with. Our family had a great time hosting her and we hope she can stay with us again.
Our first experience with CHS was very positive. We think the program can help provide a great learning experience for guests and hosts alike.
Why The Guest Applied for this Homestay Program?
The guest would like to go abroad in the future. However, she is living with my mother and It might be hard to go abroad because of the financial reasons. Since she is living in rural parts of Japan and doesn’t have much chance to talk with the native speaker, she would like to know how much does she needs to be able to speak English to communicate with the people from abroad.
