Host an International Student!

  • Post category:General Info

Want to introduce your family to new cultures, languages, and perspectives while providing a home for an international student? Host families are needed for teens from France, Mexico, and Spain and university students from Japan and Korea this spring. The students are coming for 2-4 weeks to share culture, practice English, and learn about American daily life. Teens will shadow local students at their high school or middle school, and university students will be attending classes at PSU.
