Hosts are aware that you would like to practise your English and are happy to help you with your English conversation and sometimes with homework. Please remember hosts are not teachers and as some of them have busy schedules they may not always have free time to talk at the time most convenient to you. For example, if your school finishes late and you do not return home until 10 p.m. after dinner is over, your host may be tired and preparing to go to bed. You are advised to discuss schedules with your host in order to plan your time together.
