Spanish families tell us about their experience hosting overseas students


One of the main reasons for students to choose Caxton College is the opportunity to join a full immersion programme, in order to learn and practise Spanish in and out of the classroom, almost all of the time.

That’s why the host families’ role is so important to us. They have part of the responsibility to make the students’ experience a good one.
It is not as easy a role as many think. One of the main concerns overseas students have is that they may not be able to communicate in Spanish with the host family. Gonzalo, Maddie’s host father, commented that “for us, language is not a barrier in everyday life. As a host family, we have developed skills to make communication easier.”

Carmen, Anna’s host mother, told us: “Cultural differences are the biggest hurdle for students to overcome.” The priority in the host family’s list is therefore to make every effort to ensure the students are shown the customs of our country and Valencia.
Eva, another host mother, shared her experience with us: “When I first met Dasha, she seemed quite a shy and quiet girl. But as time has gone by, we have had a chance to get to know one other and now we have a wonderful relationship. Even though a year has gone by, we still need to explain a lot of our traditions and rules that are very different from those in her country. From meal times to religious celebrations, we try to explain everything with love and understanding. And we get the same back from her.”

Caxton students are minors and, even though host families cannot take the place of biological parents, they can guide, show support and give advice.  They develop close relationships that last well past their time at Caxton College.
