Implementation

Guest stay for international students in colleges or universities will be shorter, since they are independent and busy with classes.  All activities are planned during weekends or on holidays, like Chinese Lunar New Year, Lantern Festival, Tomb Sweeping Festival, Dragon Boat Festival, Moon Festival, and so on.  Host families will invite the student(s) home or to somewhere else to experience the different customs.

While promoting the home stay program, language will be a major deterrent for host families.  This plan will combine study-buddies and short term home stay to solve this problem.  Study-buddies will act as a bridge to help host families and international students eliminate the language gap between them. This will help the participation of the host family to be more as well as help the international students to adapt better.
