My name is Ron and I’m the Housing Coordinator for FLS International, an ESL school located on the Saint Peter’s University campus.
So, you’re interested in becoming a host family?
You might be wondering about the process or what is expected of you as a host family. This should serve as a key to help you decide whether the FLS Homestay Program is for you!
As an FLS International host family, you have the unique opportunity to host international students from all around the world! You can learn about different cultures, try new foods that students might want to make for you, and involve your student as though they are part of your family.
What is expected of you?
As a host family, we ask that you provide your student with a bed with clean sheets and that you provide breakfast and dinner for the student on the weekdays and breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the weekends. We also ask that you try to include your student in many, if not all, of your family activities.
What’s the next step?
You may be wondering about the process of becoming a host family. The first step would be filling out an application, which I can send to you via email. The application is several pages long and rather detailed, but the purpose of this is so that I can understand what your preferences are when it comes to accepting students.
Hope to hear from you soon!
