Here at OneWorld Education UK, we like to think of our hosts as family. Not only to the students they welcome into their homes, but part of our ever-expanding OneWorld Family.
With this in mind, we want to start sharing some feedback and experiences directly from some of our hosts, so that you too can see the truly memorable and beneficial experience that hosting can really be for the entire family.
Emma, Dan, Toryn and Brayden have now hosted twice, and both children also attend the annual Summer Camp run by OneWorld at Talbot Heath School. Here's what they have to say about their experiences with us.
"I cannot recommend hosting more highly. Bringing additional children into our home was initially an overwhelming concept, however, I could not be happier that we gave it a try. The experience itself was fantastic, the children have always been exceptionally polite, respectful, and well behaved. My own boys have thrived having not just new 'brothers' to play with...but having their eyes opened to a whole new language and culture.
The summer camp has also been incredible for the children, both educationally and socially, giving the boys the opportunity to learn a new language, interact with international students, break down cultural barriers and develop new friendships. The staff at OneWorld have been fantastic at keeping the boys entertained for the three weeks they attend, and it is the highlight of their summers."
