Homestay reviews

“Thank you for everything you have done for and with our son.
He is absolutely delighted with his trip to New Zealand.
Next week, he will return to school and join a first class with qualifying tests for the baccalaureate at the end of the year.
Yesterday, he was listening to a movie in English and telling me how much he was surprised to be more comfortable with that language. Listening was his weak point. Now he feels more confident and it’s up to you.
A very big thank you to you and your family for the quality of the welcome and the stay that you reserved for him.
Best regards,”
