What if I have special dietary needs?
If you have a special dietary need such as an allergy to specific foods, or you are a vegetarian, please indicate this on your application form. This is important for us to know when we are trying to place you in a homestay. We will advise the family of your dietary needs to be sure that your stay is as comfortable as possible.
Your homestay family may ask you to help with supper, such as setting the table before supper or clearing away the dishes after supper. It is good manners to offer to help if you see that the family is busy with preparations. This is also a good time to practise English! Take time to talk to your family about food likes and dislikes.
