My YFU family is the best because of the complete immersion in their family they allowed me to have.
My host family gave me a second home, where I became a part of their family. They taught me German and supported me through the good times as well as the harder times. They forgave my mistakes and gave me second chances. They showed me a new world that I quickly came to love. My host family’s kindness will never be forgotten.
My host sister became like my real sister, and we are now, after two years, still very close. We see each other very often and talk almost every day. Her support and caring was incredible. I love her as a sister and respect her as a friend. She was and has stayed my best friend.
My host family is the best. There is no doubt of that in my heart.
