Appeal for host families

Shrewsbury-based language school, Bright Owls, have launched their annual search for caring host families who can provide accommodation for visiting students this July.
 Offering a unique cultural and linguistic experience for all involved, previous host families have enjoyed the chance to engage with the students, who are mostly from Spain.
 Host families should be able to provide a bed, breakfast, packed lunch and an evening meal each day.  Interacting with the students in English will help the student develop their English and communication skills in a relaxed family atmosphere.
 Students will attend English classes and exciting excursions with Bright Owls each weekday, between 9am and 6pm. Daily transport to Bright Owls is desirable, but not always necessary, as car sharing arrangements can generally be made.
The visit commences on Tuesday, 30th June - with host vacancies available for 2, 3 or 4 weeks. Host families receive £130 per week for hosting a student.
Marisa Fernández of Bright Owls says: “This has always proven to be a really rewarding experience for both the host family and the students. Great friendships are made in a short space of time!”
