I came to NZ 7 months ago, but I’d never stayed in a homestay before. When the contract on my apartment ran out, I decided to change to homestay, so at that time I asked my friends about homestay. I asked whether it was good or bad for them. Most of my friends just told me their homestay was not good for them.

In my case, when I moved to a homestay they were quite nice because they have a lot of food and very nice food. They bought a new bed and renovated the room for me. They look after me like a real son. I can talk with them about everything. I forget something this house not so far from school. I’m glad to have met them in NZ.
