FOA is by far the best experience we have had with hosting! I have been hosting since I was a little girl and now that I have my own family, we are carrying on the tradition! FOA is very organized and all staff is very friendly. We receive detailed information on each student which is so helpful to know a little about them before they arrive.
The students are well prepared before they arrive. They come with translator programs or dictionaries and make an effort to speak English. They know basic customs and are very generous with their appreciation. Staff is always eager to help when needed and that is such blessing when you are responsible for someone else children! :)
We have made some lifelong friends with our students through FOA. We have exchanged emails and have become
Facebook friends with most of our students. It has been wonderful to follow along with their lives clear across the world and to know they are following ours! All of these kids have been such nice kids we have extended the invitation for them to come and visit us anytime! That is saying a lot!
Thank you FOA for a great experience hosting students!
