Alvaro and my son got on very well as they were close in age and had the same interests. He was great, very polite and engaged. He had lots of energy and a great sense of humor. We had a lot of fun. We have had two wonderful experiences over the past two summers.
Host mother Sue from Vermont

We very much enjoyed the experience of being a host. Our student was polite, interesting and fun and taught us a bit about Spanish culture and language. Joe and Paula were wonderful to work with and made our job much easier. Sharing our home, our family life and our culture was a way for the entire family to give something back. We highly recommend being a host.
Host mother Christie from Vermont

We all found the experience to be fun and enjoyable. The girls are looking forward to hosting again next year already. I want to say how much I appreciate your care and concern for your kids. You truly have their best interests at heart. I really LOVE that about your program which is why I am excited to participate.
Host mother Candy from Connecticut

Inigo was delightful, we enjoyed his being a part of our family and both boys seemed to get along well. His English seemed great…he was fun to talk with, be with. You all were very helpful and I knew you were there…Thanks for the opportunity to share. Please keep in touch.
Host mother Evie from Massachusetts

It was a wonderful experience for all of us. We would love to have Lisa return next year. Despite her difficulty with the language, she really became part of the family. We miss her. Having her with us for a month helped to make this a great summer for all of us. Thank you for this opportunity.
Host Mother Carol from Vermont

We really enjoyed having Claudia stay with us. She was very sweet and fun to have around. All of us missed her when she left. She and my daughter were very close and got along very well from the 1st day. They both danced and had similar personalities which helped a lot.
Host mother Yvonne from Vermont

Hosting exceeded our expectations!!! I think it is key that the child coming is enthusiastic and Elisabeth was ready to meet everyone, try anything, open to seeing it all! THANK YOU - IT WAS GREAT EXPERIENCE!
Host mother Robin from Vermont

The experience for us was excellent. Our student was easy going, helpful, very pleasant and very motivated to learn English. We also really liked her as a person and became friends. We’d like her to come back! This was also such a great experience for my daughter to see how brave Monica was to come here for a month. I hope that my daughter will consider a program like this to learn Spanish!
Host mother Karen from Vermont

Jasmine and I thoroughly enjoyed hosting Teresa. She is a special young lady. She and Jasmine hit it off immediately. I felt very well supported and comforted knowing that you were close by. The experience was all I hoped it would be; Jasmine has a new friend from Spain. Thank you so much for organizing this program.
Host mother Terri from Vermont

The experience was great and, you did a great job keeping in touch. I loved the fact that you came and visited with our student in person. I would do it again in a heartbeat - as a matter of fact our student's mother has already asked if she could return next summer - absolutely yes!
Host mother Michele from Vermont

We had a lot of fun with Leire. I had a friend that lived with me. We went to a lot of different places. Altogether, it was a fun program. I would love to do it again.
Host sister Christianne from Connecticut.

I learned a lot about myself, and Paula, and how to obtain a relationship with someone I was meeting from a different country. My mom and dad thought it was awesome because they love to learn about different cultures. And we did notice improvement throughout the month with her English and she became more open to our family every week especially on the week where our family went on vacation. She became part of the family. I thought it was a great way to connect with students from a different country and it taught me, personally different skills on how to approach a foreign student
Host sister Neerja from Vermont

Our time with Alfonso was busy but wonderful. We got out to see and do things right here in Vermont that we had not done. In the end I think this was a good thing because both the student and my son were comfortable enough to be themselves. We hope you will keep doing this!
Host mother Jennifer from Vermont

Sare was pleasant and friendly and easy to be with. I think her understanding of teen English improved and overall she seemed a bit more fluent at the end.
Host mother Jane from Massachusetts.

New experiences always take a bit more effort, and this one did, but it was successful & worthwhile
Host mother Erin from Connecticut

We really enjoyed having Julia with us, we treated her as she was just like part of the family..We would do it again as it was a great experience and well done by the organizers.
Host Mother Loree from Connecticut

Thank you for the opportunity to help and give a student an experience he will cherish and remember for the rest of his life.
