Hear it from the source! Below is a collection of video testimonials, quotes and reviews from some of our hosts and students who have participated in our program. We hope they will help you to decide if hosting an international student is right for you!

The Topping Family

“Go for it. Absolutely, it would be a great thing to do. It’s really broadened our family. There’s so much more to learn than just living amongst each other. Having an international student has been a great experience for me and our entire family.”

The Case Family

“I wanted my children to grow up in an environment where they would learn about different people first hand, as opposed to reading about them or seeing them on TV. I did it for them but I didn’t realize how much I would learn.”

The Phebus Family

“Our children have learned what it means to love others, to be good hosts, and they have grown to love and respect another culture. We wouldn't trade our time with these beautiful girls for anything. What a blessing hosting has been!”

The Godfrey Family

“Our family lived in Sweden for many years, so we understand how difficult it is for exchange students to leave their homeland and live in a different country. Things are not always easy, but the challenges we face are usually the result of differences in our experiences. We’ve learned from each other and gained a better understanding of each other.”
