Have A Spare Room? 3 Teens From Spain Seeking Local Host Families In July


Print This Post  Email This Post

BTB Reader Andrew Ward alerts us to the fact that of 30 teens coming to the Northwest from Spain this July, there are three that still need host families – do YOU have a spare room and the time to help one (or all…) of these boys out?

Ward says that the teens arrive at Sea-Tac Airport on July 1st, and are scheduled to depart on July 29th.

“They will be here to experience the ‘typical daily life’ of an average American family,” he added. “They are interested in learning about our culture, practicing their English, and seeing if we are ‘like what they see on TV’ in Europe. Are we really like ‘The Jersey Shore’ or ‘90210’? The teens will not have a daily schedule, and there are no group activities planned. It’s simply a four-week language and cultural immersion program.”

All of these teens have homes except for these three (and no, they’re not starting a boy band, although they do have ‘that look’ don’t they?):

From left to right: Jordi, 17, Carlos, 16 and Jose Maria, 15, all need a place to stay during July.

Here’s more info on each of these teens:

  • Interest and activities: SOCCER, BIKING, swimming, tennis, country life, jogging, cooking, videogames, movies, dance
  • Do you smoke? No.

    It is great to host internationals students but it will be nice if the agency pays for the room and board because I had a friend who host a student from Germany girls .It was surprised for her seeing this girls go shoppping to southcenter Mall every weekend buying very expensive cloths while this girl didnot pay any penny for room to her host family…..
    It is just my opinion

    For those of you who can’t host these 3 students for 4 months. May I suggest you support your young people in the community by visiting a school Car-Wash, attend a school Play, a school atheletic event, buy some fund raising candy or just donate. You will be suprised at the talent and abilities of our your people and you might feel even better about yourself and get a clean car. Why not?
