Open heart to students
For international exchange students, this is their reality. What can make these young people adjust more quickly and completely to a new way of life is having a host family.
Hong Cross, coordinator for the local homestay program for international students, said she is in desperate need of host families.
She said students benefit from having a host family in several ways, including being immersed in life in America. Students also learn more quickly about their new home and the language of its people the more they are exposed to it.
