Some homestay people have experience in homestay in Japan in the past, and some have never. However, some of the experiences in our home say, “It is the first time to stay in homestay!” It’s like a majority.
Self-introduction text tells you if you have any homestay experience
The details of the child who wishes to stay at a homestay can be understood by writing in Japanese since the partner will send a greeting e-mail etc. in advance when exchanging between individuals. If there is a description in English, it is one hand to ask google teacher for translation. Although it has not been translated perfectly yet, you will be roughly able to tell if you have ever been to Japan or how much you have studied Japanese.
Also, if you are not a direct request from a homestay applicant, but a Japanese language school where a third party enters, a company that introduces Homestay, or an introduction from a company that requests interns, etc. Will tell you some details. Hobbies, Japanese learning experience, home
Stay experience, likes and dislikes, religion, special circumstances (diabetes, vegetarians, vegans), allergies, pets, kids, etc. It may be possible to find out whether you have homestay experience.
Most people come to Japan for the first time homestay
From my experience, about 90% of children who want a homestay feel like they are new to homestay in Japan. Occasionally, a child stays home for the first time before leaving the country. Sometimes such a child is younger, so as a host family, I often take care of my parents as if they were feeling like parents. I also treat my child like my Japanese parent to prevent myself from falling.
By the way, those who have experienced homestay understand implicitly Japanese home manners, but in the case of “first visit to Japan”, if you teach Japanese culture from a small place, it seems that the subsequent life will be smooth. “In Japan, take off your shoes at the front door.” It doesn’t make a sound, but when you eat soba or udon, the sound makes you feel more Japanese-like. “
Occasionally, some children have homestay experience with other host families
Some are minorities but have homestay experience. Some children have come to our house in the past, and some have visited Japan for the third time, and even when living at Hospa’s house, they went to the host family’s house where they had taken care of once before. And such children have their favorite spots such as “It’s fun to go here” and “Playing in Japan” and Japanese friends, so on weekends etc. I visit various places without myself Or
If you have a homestay experience, some knowledge of Japanese traffic conditions and family rules
Because it is included, you do not need to elaborate on the basic culture of Japan, on the contrary it is thought that it is a child who can build his own life style just to teach the house’s unique house rules properly .
Children who have come to Japan multiple times have good Japanese skills
In fact, many students who have visited Japan multiple times are interested and impressed with Japan, and because they like it, many international students have high Japanese skills. Except for their appearance and some accents, some lived and listened and spoke almost like Japanese. In such a child, basic daily conversation can be done without any problems, so it is okay to try a slightly higher level conversation from here.
You can also have conversations where you can exchange opinions using Japanese, so I think you can enjoy communication. I would be delighted to teach Japanese slang, etc., and I would be delighted that if I taught words and nuances that do not appear in textbooks and dictionaries, it would be “learning.” After confirming your homestay experience in Japan and your experience of visiting Japan, you will be able to become a host family that can provide you with a more satisfying daily life by dealing with the child in a way that suits them.
