"My host was a very friendly and kind person. She welcomed us very warmly and treated us like her real daughters from the very beginning of the program. I was very nervous at first because I had no idea how my homestay experience was going to be, but now I feel very happy that I stayed with a host family! I had a really fun and comfortable time at this homestay!"
