Just a normal conversation around our house and one that Amaya Gomez O Patron initiated 12 years ago when she was our foreign exchange student. She was the third of five exchange students we have hosted.
"Some of the students had just arrived to California a couple of days before, some had already spent a little time here and it was time for all of them to meet each other". The perfect way of doing so? Lisa Book, ICES Area Representative threw a Welcome To America Party, to where all her foreign exchange students were invited.
My family had tried hosting two exchange students last year, but we didn't have a good experience. Since
it was our first experience with hosting a foreign exchange student and it was such a negative experience for us, we swore that we would never try hosting again.
