No set of rules or guidelines for the American host family can ever be complete. Every student is unique. However, there are general guidelines, and we trust that they will be of help to you. Our philosophy is to promote international goodwill and understanding. It’s our belief that the international homestay experience will work to improve our understanding of the foreign student’s values and attitudes and expose the student not only to American English but to American culture through NISE programming and the host family’s lifestyle. Our goal is to move our young guests beyond the illusions of television and the Hollywood film industry to see the authenticity and diversity of everyday American life!
