Here’s a quote from a student who has been on a HOST visit recently, Waqas from Pakistan who went to Leeds to meet his HOST family.
“I had a great time with my HOST family, who live in Leeds and they were very knowledgeable about their local area which made my weekend stay with them very interesting. They took me to a vintage cinema screening and museums in the city which they certainly gave me a great insight into British Culture. Also, they prepared all the British traditional foods during my stay and it was great. I thoroughly recommend HOST to any student as it has been a very valuable experience for me”
