STUDENT FROM SPAIN
"Siempre había soñado con viajar a EE.UU. y, en el verano de 2008, me decidí por Boston. 'Crucé el charco', no solo para aprender inglés, sino también para conocer un país que me fascinaba y una cultura nueva para mi. No me decepcionó. Conocí a gente maravillosa y disfruté de la ciudad tanto como pude. La familia de acogida, fue encantadora. La casa era preciosa y la comida buenísima. Me sentí muy a gusto, la verdad. Entraba y salía cuando quería y me ayudó en todo lo que necesité. Todos aquellos que estéis pensando en embarcaros en un viaje de estas características, ¡hacedlo!".

STUDENT FROM CHINA
寄宿感言
寄宿家庭是一个提高语言和认知多国文化的优良途径。当我去年九月来到美国的时候,我发现自己的室友组成为:一个韩国学生,一个日本学生,以及一对夫妇:分别来自美国和牙买加。作为一个从未在外生活的中国学生,曾经的我对于其他文化也有着诸多偏见和误解。其中最离谱的就是我曾认为非洲和南美共有相同的文化。但是为了提高语言,我在刚开始的前两周积极的跟室友们聊天,而我对文化的理解也因此改变了。我们聊的话题很广,有关于食物,音乐,电影的,也有关于经济,政治,科学的。虽然之后大家因为各种原因不能保证每天聊,不过厨房中的偶遇以及早晨的问好都能把我们拉得更近。经过了用英文的交谈,我对其他文化和自己文化的理解都极大的加深了。尽管有时表达有障碍,手势和画画也能帮助沟通。只过了一段时间,我就能做各种的泡菜,用日文数数,并说些简单的牙买加语。

(English Translation)
Home stay is a great way to improve language level and acquire multinational cultures. When I came to America last September, I found myself living with a Japanese student, a Korean student and a married couple consisting of an American and a Jamaican. As a Chinese student without any experience living abroad, I used to have some stereotypes and misinterpretations about other cultures. The most ridiculous one was that the whole South America shares the same culture with Africa. I have a strong desire to develop my English, and I’ve had lots of practice after spending hours every day talking to my roommates. The topics could be related to food, music, and movies, or economy, politics and science. By practicing my English I’ve developed a cultural understanding that I did not expect. Despite the fact that our schedules varied, a small chat meeting in the kitchen or a friendly greeting in the morning would also bring us closer. Through exchanging ideas in English, my understanding of both their cultures and mine were enormously promoted. Although there were sometimes obstacles to clarify what we wanted to express, gestures and paintings worked as well. After a while, I was able to cook different kinds of Kimchi, count numbers in Japanese, and have a simple conversation in Jamaican Patois.
