You will be staying with an American host family while you are attending the conference. This is a wonderful time to experience American culture in the setting of an American home. TV and movies don’t portray a realistic image of American home and family life. These families have volunteered to host you and provide your meals and accommodation while you are with them at no cost to you. We are confident that you will enjoy your stay with your family.
