Staying with a New Zealandic host familyBy staying with a host family, you will get to experience how it is to live as a true Kiwi. Kiwi is a nickname used to describe the people of New Zealand, after the Kiwi bird. When staying with a Kiwi family, you get to experience the New Zealand culture and family life from up close. They will soon try to make you feel at home, and as a part of the family rather than a guest.
Caring and curious families
Your host family may live in an apartment or house, with or without kids and pets, in the city or the countryside. What they all have in common is that they are carefully selected and are looking forward to getting to know you.
Since New Zealand is so far away, it is not as common for the inhabitants here to have traveled as much as, for instance, Europeans have. They see it as an excellent opportunity to find out more about other cultures by welcoming an exchange student to their home. They would indeed like you to introduce them to music and movies from your country, try out some typical American food, and to learn some new phrases.
