Gold Coast Homestay
Other Accommodation Options
Homestay families are not necessarily Caucasian in a multinational Australia. You may see homestay families who have migrated into Australia and live as first generation or second generation Australians. They are required to speak English at all times to the students. The structure of the families is diverse including sole adult and with or without children. Many Australian families have pets. Please consider these facts when applying for homestay.
I am writing to let you know that the GABRIELs has kindly brought my son Peiyu to the airport and he arrived in Narita safely on time.
Thank you very much for your help for Peiyu. From the beginning you paid extra attention to organising English study and homestay for him despite our poor English.
Also I apologise for the trouble Peiyu caused when he has fallen sick during homestay.
We are very happy that Peiyu enjoyed 3 weeks stay in Australia and made a lot of good memories.
His homestay family the GABRIELs was so kind to him and treated him as their own. So much so that he even told us he did not want to go back to Japan. When he called the host mother Christine after coming back to Japan, he could not help but crying. Due to our language problem we have not been able to tell the GABRIELs how grateful we are. Could you please send our gratitude to them?
It was his first time to spend time in a foreign country by himself and he met a lot of nice people. We are certain that this experience added a memorable and colourful page to his life and will bring numerous benefits to his future.
Thank you again Tomoko san, AICOL teachers, staff and especially the GABRIELs.
Yours sincerely, ZHOU 2015
