my name is Yuko, and I live in the neighborhood. My mom is going to visit from Japan in August and would like to stay with a host family for a month. She's 62 yrs old, very considerate, has studied English for several years but is a bit shy to use it :) it would be nice if we can find a host family that live in the neighborhood as well. She would need a private, furnished room and will share in some family activities (like sharing meals, joining you for some outings etc) although she will be going to language school and volunteering her time somewhere and will be pretty busy. The family needs to speak English with and around her. this will be a great opportunity for someone who wants to exchange cultural experiences! She's a non-smoker, loves kids and are ok with pets (she doesn't have pets at home but not allergic to anything). She will be here 7/27-8/31 and the homestay start/end date can be flexible. We are thinking $800 for a homestay fee for the month, but it is negotiable.
