Timing Matters
  • Be sure to sign the family agreement BEFORE you book your flight! 
  • The program fee is due before you leave to live with your host family
  • We can set up your payment plan early so you can start whenever you'd like
  • If you pay the program fee after you leave, there are late fees (see our Terms and Conditions)
*Tips For Your Letter to the Host Family
  • Use a spell check!
  • Tell them about yourself, where you're from
  • Describe your family, friends, pets, 
  • Tell them about your hobbies and interests, any special skills, passions or talents you have
  • Your interests in sports, music, books, movies, etc.
  • Describe what kind of work you've done or are currently doing
  • Tell them about what you're currently studying or what you studied in school
  • Give lots of details about your childcare experience (kids' ages, duration, and type of care)
  • Talk about your plans for the future
  • Explain your motivation for wanting to live abroad! 

Do Your Research With Great Resources!
