Host a Student!
Hosting a student is such a wonderful experience. If you have young children, it's a great opportunity to introduce them to a new older child, a new language and a new world view. If you have teenaged children, they'll have a new buddy for the year. If your children are grown, well, it reminds you how much fun it was to have kids who want to learn all the time.
Victor (France) and Gabriel didn't know each other before they came to Seattle, now they are best buddies. Exchange kids like to hang out together. They are hilarious.
Gabriel's school was very small and they don't have football in Chile so he'd never done homecoming... or tied a tie!
Gabriel's Chilean Rotary taught him how to make empanadas from scratch and he made them for his host family
