Testimonial

Brazilian teacher learning English and living in Homestay says the host was always helpful, included me in daily life and I learned about US culture.

I really enjoyed my experience in the Homestay in Boston. The host was always helpful and interested in our everyday lives. She talked a lot with us, always teaching us about the American culture and being curious about our cultures. We had lots of opportunities to practice our English among American people, since she included us in her daily activities. We went on trips together, attended neighborhood meetings and went out with her relatives and friends. All of them were very friendly. I felt very comfortable in her house and would really recommend her to my friends. Thank you for giving me the opportunity of staying in such an excellent Homestay.
