Most students will undoubtedly want to speak to their family at some point during the evening. However, part of the whole experience is to spend time with their host family, so please encourage your student to join in with whatever family activities you do in the evening; whether it’s helping prepare the dinner, playing games or watching TV together. At the beginning of their stay, if you have Skype it could also be a good idea to have a Skype conversation with their family so they can see you and vice versa! If you have concerns though, please contact the Accent office.
