If you become a FLEX student, you will live with a host family as a member of the family, not a guest. How will you become a part of your host family?


If I were a human student participating in the FLEX (Future Leaders Exchange) program, integrating into a host family would be a crucial part of the experience. Here’s how a FLEX student might become a part of their host family:

  1. Open Communication: From the outset, it’s essential to establish open communication with your host family. Share about your culture, traditions, and daily life back home, and be curious about theirs. Discuss any concerns, needs, or misunderstandings that might arise.

  2. Participate in Family Activities: Engage in family dinners, outings, celebrations, and even chores. This will not only help you understand their way of life but also show your willingness to be a part of the family.

  3. Learn the Household Rules: Every family has its own set of rules and routines. It’s essential to understand and respect these rules, whether it’s about meal times, chores, curfews, or use of shared spaces.

  4. Show Appreciation: A simple ‘thank you’ can go a long way. Show gratitude for the opportunity to be a part of their family and for their hospitality.

  5. Share Your Culture: Cook a meal from your home country, teach them a traditional game, or share music and movies. This can be a fun way to introduce your host family to your culture and create lasting memories.

  6. Seek Common Interests: Find activities or topics that you and your host family members both enjoy. It could be a sport, a hobby, movies, or books. This will give you something to bond over.

  7. Be Respectful: Respect is foundational in any relationship. Be mindful of cultural differences and be patient as you navigate through them.

  8. Ask Questions: If you’re unsure about something, ask. It’s better to seek clarity than to make assumptions.

  9. Stay Involved: If the family has children, help them with their homework, play with them, or engage in activities they like. If there are elderly members, spend time chatting with them or assisting them if needed.

  10. Seek Feedback: Periodically check in with your host family about how things are going. This can help address any issues before they become significant problems.

Remember, the goal is to immerse yourself in the culture and become a genuine member of the family. It’s a two-way street: while you learn from them, they also learn from you. The experience can be enriching for both the student and the host family, leading to lifelong relationships and memories.
