Home stays have become one of the most popular travelling accommodations which is not only affordable but also becomes a communicative experience of living with native family for traveler. These student travel programs allow them to get to know about the varied culture. There are educational tour organizers in-between these two which organize the tour programs and connect these two entities. There are organizers who are doing very well with French students to make them host in American families and working in-between as mediator to make host and guest (student here) meet.
Who are hosts?
These educational tour organizers offer native families to be host family for foreign students or travelers. Hosts should be eligible for enrolling themselves to be host family for any foreign student. The eligibility of host family depends on some factors like they should have a teenager in their family who can accompany the foreign student. They should be welcoming and willing to have a guest in their home. The family should be enthusiastic for understanding different cultures. Sharing and broad thinking is appreciated for qualities of hosts. These families are supposed to create a happy and positive environment for the guest students to feel them home. It strengthens the relationship across the border and fuse different cultures. Host families need to provide them very basic needs to stay there apart from their warm love and gesture, which is room and transportation as picking up from airport and dropping at the airport. They are supposed to consider him/her as family member and include in all traditions, get together along with introducing them to their relatives and friends.
Student falling between the ages of 12 to 18 years are considered as foreign student. Travelling students could be of anywhere in world and stay anywhere but they all must have learnt English for communication. They are matched with these families according to age compatibility of the teenager in that home. Such school trips to France are very educating.
