The homestays in New Zealand are very friendly. They try to make your life as comfortable as possible. If you have dietary needs or prefer fish instead of meat, it will be a good point to write to your family before you arrive in New Zealand. Make sure that you tell the school about your preferences. Remember you are going to New Zealand to learn English, so you should join in conversations with others members of your home stay family, don’t sit in your room. Guys, I hope you like fish and chips, because you will have eaten them many times before you go back home.^^)
