Will there be any expenses for your family?
Whether you choose a full immersion student or a family helper, your only cost will be room and board.
It is up to your family if you would like to pay the entrance fees to events (movies, state parks, museums, etc.) or you could ask your student to pay their own fee. All teens arrive with pocket money and are prepared.
How will the student get to your home?
All students will be arriving at the O’Hare International Airport. We will be there to greet them at the terminal.
You may pick your student up there or other arrangements could be pre-arranged.
I am busy during the summer; do I have to entertain them all day?
They are coming to America to experience our lifestyle and improve their English. Take them along when you shop, go to the beach, etc. A special outing once/twice a week might be fun!
