Now that the clocks have gone forward, the weather has taken a turn for the better with the sunshine making some rare appearances, and the nights are getting lighter, a lot of us are turning our thoughts to the Summer months when we will be enjoying our well-deserved holidays.
However, for many families, a trip abroad will not be on the cards this year. Fortunately, there is a solution. Manchester Host Families will be bringing a taste of Spain to thirty local households by inviting them to host a Spanish student for a fortnight in July. They need to have a family member aged between 11 and 17 and be available from the 13th to the 27th July. And unlike a holiday where they have to spend money, they can experience Spanish culture first-hand while being paid £120 per week to do so. The host teenager will also have an opportunity to travel to Spain in August to stay with their Spanish students family, thus completing the cultural exchange cycle!
This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who is looking to broaden their knowledge of another way of life, while at the same time providing a totally British experience for their guest. Interested parties can get in touch via the website or by telephone to register.
