FAMILIES are needed to host international exchange students.

Gold Intercultural Learning is organising several upcoming Japanese exchange trips and is “desperately” looking for more families to help.

Homestay co-ordinator Sally Tam said host families did not need to have a child studying at the school.

“It is as simple as involving your student in your daily routine,” she said.

“As a host you will receive a visit from our staff, 24-hour bilingual support and payment.”
