    Has anyone had a foreign student live in their home for a semester or more?

    Not for a semester - it's all I can do to keep my own family sane. LOL But we've had Chinese graduate students stay with us for Thanksgiving. It was so fun as they took pictures of the turkey, gravy, stuffing, the table, etc. They had never had any of this food! It was fun teaching them American traditions and American foods.

    No, I have not. Don't plan on it either. But, kudos to those who do.

    I sense there is an underlying reason for the question. Such as if you haven't been exposed to foreign students then you are out of touch and unable to understand the larger world that we live in. But, I could be wrong.

    I have never had the opportunity to host a foreign exchange student. I have hosted several pastors and missionaries from around the world. I have also travelled extensively...

    So?

    Yes, we had a girl from Finland come live with us for a summer. I will NEVER, EVER have a foreign exchange brat in my home again! If you think American teenagers have problems, it's nothing compared to the teens from completely godless foreign countries.

    I haven't but my cousin has. He's had three foreign exchange students from time to time. Each was polite and pleasant.

    They all failed flight school. They were lousy pilots.

    I didn't, but someone I work with had one in their home from Australia for a semester, and we talked about what happened daily. It seems to be a rewarding experience.

    I answered this assuming no liberal agenda attached.
