This letter is from our student’s parents.
Dear Mr. & Mrs. ,
Hello, we are (student name) parents. We are glad to send you this letter to thank you all. (student name) has already lived with your family for a year. (student name) told us that host mom is an amiable person and a good cook! Host dad is really good at guitar, and two daughters are very pretty. What a enviable family!
During this year, (student name) probably gave you some difficulties since she lived into your house, you not only care about her daily life, but also bring her to school and back everyday, thank you so much for taking care of her. (student name) really likes your family, she can feel like she’s at home when she is staying with you. Especially, you try to find some places that you can bring her to play during vacations, so that she doesn’t have to stay at home alone and miss home. On the other hand, you always buy some Chinese food, fruits and snakes for her. All of these are so important for a child who goes to a different country alone. As her parents, we sincere appreciate for these.
I wish we can develop our relationship through her.
We are also looking forward that you can come to China someday. We will be so happy to guide you to travel in China, just like a family, and we are gonna be friends forever.
Hopefully, this e-mail doesn’t disturb you. I hope we can keep in touch.
(student name)’s parents,

This is our Host family’s reply
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Zhang,
(Host Parent) and I are happy to hear that (Student Name) likes it here. (Student Name) is very sweet and helpful. I rely on her quite often to help me in the kitchen, and with other chores around the house.
You have raised a delightful child. Sometimes she needs reminding to do things that need to be done, but she always tries her best to do as I ask of her.
It has been very interesting finding out how different our cultures are, as I often ask her and (Student Name) many questions about customs and similar situations in the USA that they may also encounter in China. Chinese children are definitely different than American children! Their commitment to studying is definitely one of those differences.
I must be honest and tell you it has been a challenge to find things that (Student Name) and (Student Name) would like to do in America. Perhaps it is our area in which we live, or also our budget that prevents us from showing them more. But because they are from a city that has so much to offer there seems to be very little that I can impress them with. I wish there was more I could show them.
Thank you for the offer of introducing us to your county if we visit. It would be very interesting to do so. Perhaps we may be able to in the future.
It has been so nice to hear from you. I would very much like to keep in touch. If ever you have any concerns, please feel free to contact me.
