    Wow is this a needed resource. I’ve had any number of “flops” with arranging for Christian, church connection families willing and happy to have a student in their homes for six to eight weeks in the summer…only to find the student or a number of students wanting to “move” to another family and out of their assigned family because their family wasn’t ideal in accordance with their pre-established expectations for a homestay family. Education and training need be prepared and implemented for the “American,” host families and for their incoming students! Oh, the sad stories I have to tell! THOSE STORIES ARE SAD ON/IN ALL SIDES OF THE ISSUES! There are examples of poor understanding and/or preparation both among Japanese students’ understandings of American families and, also representative examples of American understandings of Japanese students! It can become a real enigma of (lack of) realistic understandings of others.
