Eileen’s Experience: A tremendous opportunity!
Over the past eight years, I’ve had the pleasure of hosting students from more than 25 countries as well as from the U.S. This experience has enabled me to learn so much about other cultures.
As a host family, I have spent many pleasurable hours getting to know my students and enjoyed
helping them as they learn about American culture and become proficient in English. This process is very rewarding and often so entertaining! Another benefit to being a host family is that you will be able to increase your income significantly!
As a bilingual education teacher, teacher trainer, psychotherapist, world traveler, second language acquisition specialist, and as an international student studying abroad, I discovered that I have the perfect skill-set for being a host family. I currently host six students in my home and enjoy sharing this opportunity with other families and students!
