Host family needed for Japanese student

Spring International Langauge Center is seeking a host for a Japanese student from Kanto Gakuin University. The student is coming for a four month study abroad program with Spring International Language Center. The host will be required to transport the student to and from school each day, provide a private room (a shared bathroom is okay), and breakfast and dinner, and make the student feel like a part of the family. The dates are from August 19th - December 22nd. 

Kanto Gakuin has a long relationship with Spring International. Each year, the school sends multiple groups of students to study at SILC for different lengths of time. Students from Kanto are bright, positive, and excited to learn about American culture. Hosting a Kanto student is an excellent opportunity to learn about the country and culture of Japan while also making your guest feel welcome and comfortable in America. 

If you are interested in playing a very important role in this person's American experience, please contact Spring International Langauge Center as soon as possible. Call 479-575-7600 or e-mail
