Homestay weekend

My host student is Freya. Her parents don’t speak much English, but her dad speaks more than her mom, so I’ve been able to talk with him. We spent 2 hours going through the books I gave them as their gifts. There was an American cookbook and an American national parks coffee table book, and I showed them my favorite places and foods. During the weekend and after school, I visited the summer palace, the zoo, and a famous lake with Toni and Grace. We’ve been able to bond over talking about the culture of these places.
