Host Families in Victoria (Canada)

テーマ:Live with new people
I have 4 host families in Canada. I was studying at University of Victoria, English Language Course.

My homestay were always awesome! I could meet really nice people.

Family 1 :
Far from my school but they had 2 puppies, hot host sisters, funny dad, & mum! I talked to her everything.

 Sometimes we cried together & laughed a lot.

She was very good at cook so I really enjoyed to be in this family!

Host dad got a good job ( good money!) so they moved to Vancouver...I had to move out. We cried(>_<)

Family 2 :
I stayed with this family for 2 weeks! It was so short time but I gained 2 or 3 kg in this house...

I was eating so well...just because host mum were baker! She baked yummy breads!

Mum & daughter & cat & dog ( her name is Japanese NIKKOU = Sun Shine)

Family 3 & 4 :
It was very weird when I moved from first hostfamily. Family 3 was familier to my host sister's boyfriend.

I knew that family 3's house was across the street from his house! Family 4 was his house actually!

We were all conected. ( My first host mum knew Second host mum as well so...conected!)

Even it costs a lot, I prefer homestay than flat or share.

Being a member of family is difficult sometimes but if you're in right place, you'll find great fun & happiness.

 I'm enjoying homestay so far! ( I'm staying homestay in NZ as well)

I learnt so many things from each family(>w<)

We can learn not only English but also how to hug, culture differences something like these, & much more!!.

テーマ:Live with new people
My first homestay...I had this experience in Australia. My host family gave me a pretty room.

I couldn't speak English well so I had to use dictionary all the time.

Host mum, dad, brother, dogs, & 2 other students ( who from HongKong & Japan ). It was a whole new thing!

They had a pool in their big yard, table tennis table...I enjoyed homestay a lot!

One day I came home but nobody was home. I looked around the house & I found host mum!

She was in the pool & relaxed! I loved to that too. Their food were always yummy!

We had lots lots of fun! Oh well, I miss them now!!

 My dream is to be a Japanese teacher for foreigners. Or to be a good mum?? Or both!!
