FRAMINGHAM – Six more host families are urgently needed for students from Spain, who arrive on June 28.
Each student is placed with a host family for a total English/Family immersion for just over 3 weeks.
Families just need to include the student in their regular summer activities. The students travel with health insurance of course, and their own spending money for any activities you do, extra snacks, movie tickets, etc. etc. etc. but regular meals would be provided with the family.
The student may share a room with their American “siblings” of the same sex, they don’t necessarily need their own room.
Host families receive $400 to help with household expenses.
“I travel with the students and stay locally in Framingham the entire month, available 24/7 by phone or email,” said Carrie Mittleman.
At the webpage www.letsboston.com under the Host Families tab there is a Q/A document as well as alonger Host Family Guidebook that should answer a lot of initial questions
Families interested in hosting should email email@example.com
Interested families should fill out an application.
Once that is filled out, I will contact your references and arrange for a colleague of mine to visit your home, she said.
I can send you the profiles of the students so you can look and see who might be the best “match” for your family and your interests, she added.
Students are 14-17 years old, great students, polite, and enthusiastic!
Hosting a student is an amazing experience for everyone, said Mittleman.
