Testimonials

 With children in their family, we enjoyed singing and watching TV together. It was fun and also I was able to learn English from them. It was also very enjoyable when we went shopping with my Host mother. She took me to different shops and told me about the Australian culture. It was a great experience to be with my Host family for two weeks and I am very grateful.
