Do you get paid?

Do you give them house rules?

What if they don't like your cooking?

How much contact do you have with their parents?

I do not get paid. The organization I go through is volunteer

yes house rules are given and expected to follow through

then they can cook. I do cook some of their traditional food but they are here for American experience and I will not do that all the time

i Facebook the current one.  The last one very little because they did not use computers.  Both parents do not speak English and I do not speak their language. Last year I would interpret through adult sibling who speaks English and this year through a teacher in home country who speaks English

What age range?

What countries have you gotten kids from?

Do you stay in contact with past students?

from what countries?

Are they generally "good" kids? 

How long do they stay?

How long do they stay? A semester or an entire school year?

Do you get really attached to them?

Have you ever hosted a kid who you just didn't like?

Do you stay in contact after they go home?

One of my best friends senior year was an exchange student, we keep in touch through fb still. (Even though I dont understand a word of his updates)
