How Can We Help?

How to proceed if the student has special dietary needs?

If the student has a special dietary need such as an allergy to specific foods or is a vegetarian for example, please indicate this on the student application form. This is important for us to know when we are trying to find a suitable homestay for the student. We will advise the family of dietary needs to be sure that his or her stay is as comfortable as possible.

Homestay families may ask students to help with supper, such as setting the table before supper or clearing away the dishes after supper. It is good manners to offer to help if the student sees that the family is busy with preparations. This is also a good time to practise English! Students should also take time to talk to the homestay family about food likes and dislikes.
