Host family accommodation is a local family that opens their home to visitors or tourists. Hosting visitors is the best way to experience the world without leaving your home. Hosting provides families with the unique opportunity to share their cultures and learn about different cultures, while being in the comfort of their own homes. Many families host for various reasons which may include, learning about other cultures, nationalities and religions, utilization of unused space, helping others and of course as a source of income.
The insight and flexibility gained through hosting helps to prepare host families for the always fast-changing, multicultural world. With this awareness comes an increased tolerance of the differences between people and a heightened appreciation of the similarities. Ultimately, the lasting friendships that are formed are perhaps the most valuable part of the experience.
