How has being a host changed your life?
We have a beautiful country with lots to offer students….how amazing to share these memories which we know these students will talk about for years…
We have been hosting students with MLI for 5 years. The experience of providing a home for students from other countries has been so amazing both for us and the students we have hosted.
We’ve been hosting with MLI since September 2021. Our coordinator is fantastic, an advocate for the parents and for the students. Highly recommend MLI Homestay.
