Testimonials

 Hello. This was my first homestay, so I was worry about everything. But my Host mother and American foreign student who also lived together with us was very kind to me, the family took us to a restaurant and told the best shops to purchase souvenirs. Everything was good, but the thing I think was best is the existence of foreign student in the Homestay. She was a good friend to talk with and was also a good English teacher. I became able to enjoy a conversation in English better. I really enjoyed life in Homestay! Thank you.
