Hello, we have been hosting international students (adults and teens) for more than 3 years. We truly enjoy the experience and the cultural exchange that develops. We have hosted students from Vietnam, Japan, Spain, India and Brazil. We have had great experiences with these students, who were attending school to study English, going to College and some were independent - working on Visas and/or for Companies. We are excited to get a chance to meet many more students from whichever Country they originate from. We would be honored to learn about you, your family and your culture as you learn English and all the cultural and social exchanges in our home.
We are a professional couple with a 9 and 6 years old. They love having guests and will want to play with you and be your new friend. Both children are courteous, kind and caring. You will feel the warmth of their friendship as soon as you meet them. Our students have commented on how well-behaved they are and that they are very considerate. We do not have any pets so you won't have to worry about allergies or fear of animals.
We enjoy teaching English and sharing the American Culture. We have a Bachelors degree in Psychology and a Masters degree in Counseling from California State University, Fullerton and a Bachelors and Masters degree from California State University, Long Beach.
Your English lessons will focus on life skills such as conversations, vocabulary, listening, pronunciation, reading, writing and grammar. We can tailor the lessons to your particular needs and interests. Lesson times are flexible, depending on the student's and teacher's schedules with 1 hour daily structured duration. You will also learn English through popular music, TV, videos, games, food, clothes shopping and visiting fun, beautiful and exciting places around Orange County. What we hope for is that when you go home, your English will become Excellent and you will be ready to further your studies or have a major advantage in business dealings involving English. We will help you get immersed in the American culture and help you gain knowledge of American business practices, since Don has a strong background in the business world.
We love to go sight-seeing and visit many local places with our children. Our joy is to show our students around the many sights and activities to see & do in Orange County and Southern California. Our family plays a variety of sports as well. We love playing tennis, swimming, soccer, basketball, as well as going to movies, cooking, baking and playing board games or Wii at home.
Your homestay program can also include an immersion lesson plan that includes private instruction in tennis. You can have an opportunity to learn about Tennis terminology, develop skills/techniques and strategy for playing the fantastic game of Tennis.
We live in a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in Huntington Beach, CA. Our home is in a great area (safe & quiet) and within a 7 minute walk to the beach. Your room is furnished with a comfortable bed, big closet, desk, high speed, wireless broadband internet (Webcam & Skype available), and a washer, dryer is available for your use.
