What are homestay hosts and families really like?
Before choosing your mode of accommodation, you should consider a homestay option. However, we understand it can be intimidating to live with a stranger/strangers in their home (in a different country too).
Watch the video below to reassure yourself about what a homestay host can be like. We interviewed Frank, an American homestay host who lives in Brooklyn (New York). Here, he talks about what being a host has given him and what he expects of international students who live in his home. Also, he takes us on a tour of his home, so international students can see the kind of home they may live in if they choose an American homestay option.
Watch the video. If it helps you, LIKE it; if someone you know would find it useful, share it with them.
