Any exp at your house?
My sister had a couple of Korean students for a while. My sister inlaw has a Japanese girl at her place (I think its the second one she's had there). I haven't heard of any problems.
They try to entertain them a bit with sightseeing and the odd excursion, but they also have their work/family schedules and the exchange students have their schedules. Meals and a bedroom and your set. In both cases it helped that my sister and my sister inlaw have teen age kids that help out with socializing.
Yah, we aren't too worried about it. We will be housing either Japanese/Chinese or Korean. Not sure where my preference lies at this point but it looks as though we will get a sack of balls. Thats ok, wifey no likey, haha
We have two other students on our street so we are hoping he/she will be over there most of the time so he/she doesn't take up my man room kitchen. haha In all seriousness we aren't doing it bcs we need moola etc, but having the moola and saving the rec room and kitchen plus the moola means we dont have to rent to some creepy fellow or lady with cats.
