The trips abroad that this place has been written many, have you ever thought the „opposite direction“? The famous second side of the coin raises the question – why not offer a foreign student per semester or full-year accommodation in your family?

The trips abroad that this place has been written many, have you ever thought the „opposite direction“? The famous second side of the coin raises the question – why not offer a foreign student per semester or full-year accommodation in your family?

The Czech Republic is engaged in the provision of host programs such as the AFS (American Field Service), an international nonprofit organization specializing in cross-cultural educational opportunities. The purpose of the program is to link the culture, mediate contacts and meet new and need to retaliate or similar service. Students who come to us from dozens of countries around the world and get a chance to live for the „typical“ of a Czech family and to experience life in our country. (If you have at this point to present a typical family of well-known or typical loner of Bohemia from the novel for women, fast Banish those images again!).

Foreign students, during their stay here should best fit into the host family. Given that this is a program for high school students, incoming students are aged 15–18 years. Comments on the website talks about the curious teenager who goes, and „son“ / „daughter“, which will leave from here (but that's about all a private matter). Direct confrontation is living in a particular family is the cornerstone of this program, „ordinary“ tourist experience for those „family“ must necessarily fall short. Another strong side of things is to practice your language skills. However, it is obvious that some cultural traditions around completely alien nevydýchá probably never – such as Joe's friend and his Korean experiences with animals, which we call the best friends of man. Well, there's a little different …

The organization's web­site, see application form, which in the case of serious interest in adopting new temporary family member fill out and send to that address. Then let's come to visit the AFS volunteer with whom you agree on how to proceed. The purpose of the visit is a natural supplement information from the application, which is particularly important for selecting the most appropriate student. If you really took this program, with the mission of pre-registration not take too long. The next school year 2005/2005 will come to the Czech Republic to study 46 students, some students, however, the organization at this time does not yet have a suitable host family. Arrival of young people, particularly from Thailand, Hong Kong, Chile, Japan and Germany is scheduled for 19 August.

It is also important to note what this entails obligations for the host family. Given that AFS has the status of voluntary organizations, the vast majority of spending is on the shoulders of a new family. This would, according to its possibilities, the student should provide the basic security (food and accommodation), students should also receive an allowance for personal expenses. Other items of standard hinges on a particular family generally would be that students should enjoy a similar level as their own children. AFS students pay for school trips, school supplies and expenses related to travel in addition to tickets. The organization also available for students pay full health insurance and health care in the country.

The company, founded in 1914, is currently the largest volunteer organizations in the world (before it is no longer „just“ Red Cross) and addresses the concerns of both the incoming students, but also provides an exit package.
