Got Room? Three Spanish Exchange Students Need Summer Homes
BTB Reader Andrew Ward, a local high school teacher, wants our Readers to know that he’s seeking temporary housing for three exchange students who are flying to Washington from Spain this summer.
Here’s the note from Andrew:
I’m a high school teacher in Burien, and I’m looking to place three students from Spain with local families for the month of July.
The program is through Nacel Open-Door (www.nacelopendoor.org). Families only need to provide a separate bed for the student, and a spot at the dinner table.
This is a GREAT way for students to experience some international culture during their summer months off of school, and play “tour guide” for their Spanish guest!
Three more homes are needed where the Spanish teens can learn about life in America and practice their English. They have their own insurance and spending money. They just need to have their own bed to sleep in and a place at the dinner table.
Host families will need to complete an application packet. Itâ€™s pretty easy, and it’s a FUN way to get to know another culture and potentially make lifeâ€long, international friends!!!
If you are interested in participating, please email Mr. Andrew Ward, a high school Spanish teacher in Burien, at [email protected] as soon as possible. Time is of the essence in getting everything set up in time for them to be able to come to the US. It would be such a shame to have these few kids miss out.
