Lynda & Chi
As a family we enjoy the homestay experience. We love to learn about different cultures as well as share our New Zealand culture. This is the 3rd time we have hosted a Japanese homestay through this organization and have found the experience to be rewarding.

We have hosted four Japanese students with this organisation now and we have enjoyed hosting all of them. It's a great way to learn about different cultures while also sharing our own

Moto stayed with us when he was on a 2-week rugby training programme here. One of Motor's favourites was NZ ice cream, so we brought him to try out the varieties. We started hosting foreign students in 1996 and are still enjoying it
