Host Family Testimonials

"My family enjoy the experience of hosting foreign students. We get to learn other cultures and how they bring up their children. We especially love hosting students from OPDS whose students are usually well behaved, well mannered and polite. We are looking forward to hosting more students from OPDS."
Host Family - London

"I enjoy having students in my house as it gives me a chance to find out about the country where they come from and helps me to learn their culture. I love cooking with students if they know how to cook as this gives us an opportunity to socialise and have fun time. My children enjoy making new friends and playing with them. We live near a big park and like going out for walks together. It is a delight to show them around our beautiful city."
Host Family - Oxford

“I am a host for OPDS and, as such, have had the pleasure of welcoming many students from overseas, mainly from China. These young people are always polite and respectful. It is very rewarding to watch them grow and gain confidence. I look forward to resuming this very worthwhile work in the near future.”

“In our time working as a host family with OPDS, we have always found them to be professional and caring. Always setting themselves, along with their host families, the highest possible standards of care.”
