Our students leave York with wonderful memories and lifelong friendships
'I really enjoyed staying with you! You're kind and always tried to understand
my poor English. I like to talk to you very much. I wish I could stay longer. Visiting York is worthwhile to me. I'm sure
i will study English harder when I return to Japan. Thankyou so much for supporting me. You are SO nice!!' Keiko
'I very much enjoyed my time at your house and I hope to see you again soon.'
'Thankyou very much! It's my first time to live with a host-family.
You treat me as a real mother. I really appreciate that. I begin to have confidence to speak English for you keep talking
to us day by day. I've learned a lot of British culture and customs through our conversation. With your support I am able
to enjoy the badminton club. Thankyou very much for everything, I really feel at home here.' Miko-China.
'I have many fond memories of my time in York. You must come visit me in Milan.' Alberto-Italy.
'3 weeks in York is not enough time. I wish I can stay longer. I really enjoy my classes and we have some great
visits to many places. I love the food in my host family and meeting students from other countries. I hope to come back very
soon. Thankyou.' Cindy-Paris.
'I have met
so many wonderful and interesting students through being a host. The easy part is being a host-family, the difficult bit is
saying goodbye!' Homestay family-York.
