Host Family Considerations

If you are going to be living with a host family while you study abroad it is a kind gesture to bring a gift of some sort from the United States to give to the family upon your arrival.  Whether it is some chocolates, some music, or a candle, a small gesture can go a long way and is a pleasant way to start out your new living situation. 

It is important that you are respectful in the household, follow the rules, and pick up after yourself.  You never know what doors these international connections will open in the future, whether it be a place to stay if you are traveling in the area or someone to continue to practice your language skills with when your return home; be sure to make your living situation a positive one!
