My name is Anja and I'm from Germany. Before I came to New Zealand, Host Families NZ gave me some information about my homestay. It was really comforting to know where I have to live for the next couple of months. In my homestay lived two children who were very nice and it was really helpful for improving my English to speak with them. Unfortunately the family moved to another house and there was not enough space for me. Host Families NZ looked for a new homestay and I was able to tell them my wishes. The change was fast and easy. The new family was really nice too and I felt welcome. All in all I was very content with Host Families NZ and if I go back to NZ, I will live in a homestay again.
