Unless you have lived in Australia, your understanding of Australia may be limited to media or other people's experience. However movies, tourism advertisements and news are not equal to everyday life of Australian families. Each family is different. Unrealistic expectations are often the causes of misunderstanding and disappointment.
Our processes and tools are designed to help you and the host family to understand each other better and make informed decisions before your arrival. With realistic expectations, you will find your homestay experience satisfying and enjoyable.
