Appeal for host families

Caring host families are being sought once again by Shrewsbury-based language school Bright Owls. Interested families are now invited to get in touch to discuss this rewarding cultural opportunity!
Following a successful programme that has been running for several years, European students will be visiting the UK again this year to learn English and experience the UK’s unique culture, under Bright Owls tuition.
The visiting students will be learning with Bright Owls during the daytime, as they participate in English classes and excursions - and host families are required to provide friendly accommodation.
The students will be staying for 2 weeks, arriving on June 28 and leaving on July 12. A contribution of £140 per student per week is made, to help with the costs of providing host accommodation.
Marisa Fernandez of Bright Owls says “This is always a really rewarding cultural experience for all involved - and we are looking for new host families to join our existing ones this year. Host families simply need to provide a bedroom, breakfast, a packed lunch and dinner. Transport to and from the school would be an advantage but not essential - Bright Owls would take care of the rest!”
She added “We would love to hear from anyone that would be interested in becoming one of our host families this summer. I encourage people to get in touch via the phone or email, to find out more.”
