One part of your application is writing a personal letter, giving a presentation of who you are and what you like. All our host families do the same. Based on these presentations, our local representatives will do their best to match you with a family that fits your profile. Give your personal letter some extra attention to enhance the chances of the perfect match!
We put a lot of emphasis on selecting our host families. After the host families apply, we interview them, visit their home and collect references. Many of our host families are experienced and used to having an exchange student in their home. What they all have in common is a genuine interest in cultural exchange. Just like you!
