What is the easiest part of hosting?
I think is when you get to know the students, there is communication, and you start to build a family with them.
Were your expectations of hosting met or is it different to what you expected?
When i first did it was completely different to what I thought it would be. But now, after three years I find it better and easier.
What are your top tips for new host families?
Be open, honest, start only as you mean to go on, be patient and understanding, speak if there are problems.
What would you do differently, if anything?
This is a hard question because everyone is different and each student is different and needs different things.
What have some of your students gone on to do after their exchange?
One is been accepted in a medical school, and one is been modelling for a hair magazine.
Barbara and Dougie are getting married in 2020 and hope to have some of their students join them for the celebration. Barbara is also planning a trip to Brazil to visit Stelle.
