They are excellent. From the day I arrived and met my host mother she was a really kind person. She gave me a cup of tea first thing. She's very patient and listens to me. Now we are like a family - a real family. If I am in a bad mood, I can just talk to her - like a real mother!

My host family helps me with English and I will miss them a lot. I was worried before I arrived if they might not be friendly and if I could understand English but all is OK. Everyone I have met at home and in the town is very friendly.
