“When I arrived at my home from Japan I so shy and very nervous but soon I be very happy because my host made me feel so welcome. They help my English a lot. If I not meet you my stay in Australia be a lot harder. I am very grateful to my Aussie mum and dad and very sad to say goodbye. I will keep in touch. Thank you for everything” Shintaro.
“Thank you for that time you let me stay in your home and in your life. It was very nice to come to Australia from Brazil and see that there is people like my family everywhere. I will have to say goodbye and I will miss your breakfasts and my apple juice that I drank too much. Thanks for everything!! Obrigado purtudo !! Sorry about my English. Daniel
“In the past 2 months we have had many good days. I got sick but you looked after me. It made me think of my grandmother as she looked after me when I was sick. Thankyou for doing that. You taught me many new words and how to cook. I was proud every time somebody ask me about my homestay. For me it was perfect and I will miss you a lot but I will write you.” Jean
“I am happy when I stay with you. Although I only stay with you 2 weeks but I think it’s good thing in my life and I hope you will remember me. You are my best host family. Sorry for my writing. When you go to Thailand you can ring me and I take care of you. Bye from Pok.
“This is my first experience out of Brazil. I must say that never passed in my mind before how great and happy was living with you. I had so much fun and so many laughs. I considered you part of my family and you have a special place in my heart. Thanks for everything, was great time living with you and I will miss you so much. I learn about football and song. We are Geelong the greatest team of all ! Look like I live big part of my life here. So many experiences, Victoria, surfboard, all plans and ideas I had in your house. Laerte.
“When I first arrive I felt nervous and scary everything. With your caring I gradually got used to place and enjoy every moment in Melbourne. Besides the caring I appreciate your teaching which makes me improve very fast. To me you are like a mother in Melbourne. You treat me like a daughter. Wish you can have a healthy and happy life after I leave. I will definitely come visiting you occasionally. See you soon”. Min
