Thanksgiving Exchange Program 2011
Host Family Testimonials
"I wanted to tell you that we had the best time having Jacey & Chien-Wei at our home for Thanksgiving. They thoroughly loved all of the new food experiences and enjoyed conversing with our other dinner guests. We downloaded a fact sheet of Thanksgiving information and trivia. We discussed it around the table as we ate, and I even learned a couple of factoids! We look forward to participating in this event for the years to come. It was a delight sharing this very American tradition with our foreign colleagues."
-- Scott, Host from Ocean Beach
"In addition to good conversations, the musically gifted students (Bryan and my nephew played the piano, my son played the violin) entertained us with their talents."
-- Lucy, Host from Del Mar
"Our students added to our evening immensely, count us in for next year!"
-- Sue, Host from Solana Beach
"It was so much fun to have Xinyi with us! She is such a sweet girl and so outgoing! After we ate, my husband showed her around the fire station and took her for a ride in the truck. Then when we got back, they had a call. She went on the call with them! Xinyi was so excited. I think she had a good time Thanks for arranging this. I had such a great time with her."
