Based on your application, your profile will be presented to host families that we feel suit your requirements and skill-set. You will also be able to contact families who are suitable to you.
You can email, Skype and speak with each host family during the matching process to help ensure that you find the family most suitable to you.
The most important thing is that you relate well to your host family, and can enjoy a good relationship before, during and after your stay.
