This is an opportunity for students to expand their English language skills and understanding of American culture while sharing their native culture with the community at their school.  At Sara‘s Homestay, we make it our goal to select high quality students for our program. We evaluate each student‘s motivation for the program, academic history, and English ability, so that each student can have a productive and successful experience at your host school.  Most students who attend the program stay for multiple years and have their sights set on continuing to a university in the US.

  8. 8.  A Letter of Thanks from a Current Parent  ―Thank you for sending us the Summer Program Report, it makes so happy and reassured to read! We are impressed by the care Sara‘s Homestay extends to our students. Our kids have made great progress in the study of English and in adapting to American life! Qianju has made great efforts for the summer classes, planning everything herself and doing the job positively! She has even taken part in the weekend activities, introducing our students to new and exciting things. Last Tuesday, she met us and told us about the performance of the students in the summer classes and plans for the upcoming term. She provided answered for our questions and made us feel good and at ease! We appreciate the efforts of the host families to cook breakfasts and dinners for the children. According to the students, she has been doing a great job.. The days in the U.S. enabled us to feel the deep care and thoughtfulness of Sara‘s Homestay. Please accept my sincere thanks.‖  ―张先生:你好! 非常感谢你的提醒。 艾玛的房间光线充足,但考虑到学生晚上都要做作业,所以需要学习台灯,周末带她自己购买也无妨。 门闩一事主要是考虑到女生的安全感和生活习惯,dollar妈妈说,医生一家已经提出了此事, 下次会帮她们安装,看来他们考虑得很周到。最近有很多艾玛的同学和我的同事来咨询留美事宜, 我相信中国今后有这方面需求的家长会越来越多,贵公司优质的服务给我留下了深刻印象,我会介绍他们来联系你。‖  Quotes from Students  ―Studying abroad offered an invaluable exposure to life in other parts of the world at a young age. It reframed the way I viewed the world, and made me realize that the politics of a nation don't always reflect the hopes and aspirations of its people.‖ – graduating senior, class of ‗12  ―Studying abroad requires a willingness to be challenged: to be more tenacious and resilient by overcoming the challenges of living in a new place that often comes with language barriers, different cultural norms, and novel environments full of foreign people and places we‘ve never encountered. Education abroad experiences present us with new ideas and beliefs, and as we encounter new worldviews, these experiences teach us to be patient—with ourselves and with others—as we convey our identity and background to others while learning to appreciate and accept theirs.‖  ―Matlock is a truly global community where all feel welcome and where diversity is appreciated. In my four years at Matlock, I have enjoyed close friendships with people from places like France and Russia and worked on projects with people from Poland and Romania. I would have never experienced this back home.‖ Testimonials 8
