Becoming a host family: a wonderful experience
In Entrelenguas, we know that cultural immersion is the key in the learning process of every student and one of our main objectives is the inclusion of the community in our activity. For this, among the forms of accommodation we offer, is the stay with a family. This is without a doubt an enriching experience for the whole family: the best way to get to know another language and another culture, making friends for life and travel without leaving home. For the student visiting Ronda staying in a family’s house changes everything, as they have the opportunity to live in accordance with the customs of a Spanish family. This will for sure be an unforgettable experience for the language and the personal value.
We work with local families who have been carefully selected to ensure the student feels at home during their stay. Today we interviewed Miguel Cid, a member of one of the host families who collaborate with us.
E: Miguel, why did you decide to become a host for students?
M: I love meeting people from other countries and cultures, and I wanted to live the experience of living with a foreign person in my own house.
E: What does it mean for you to be a host family?
M: The young students have shown a great interest in learning about every corner of our city, they were amazed by the history and they have done their bit to improve it. Participating in this learning has been more than rewarding, I feel so proud of being Rondeño!
E: Would you recommend this experience to other families?
M: Not only do I recommend it, but also I consider it compulsory for all Rondeños to open the doors of their home to anyone who wants to come and meet us and immerse themselves in our incredible culture.
E: It has been a pleasure to see you and to chat with you but before you say goodbye is there anything you would like to add?
M: I would like to thank the company Entrelenguas, that offers the possibility of a teaching through a linguistic-cultural immersion so flattering for students and that they bring the name of Ronda to all parts of the world.
