Homestay Homes needed for Korean University Students

During the month of July fifteen students from Baewha Women’s University in Seoul Korea will be learning about American culture and the English Language at Concordia University.  We are seeking homestay families to house the students from July 2nd to July 30th. Students can be housed alone or in twos.   Concordia will keep them busy most of the day during the week.  There are also a couple of weekend day excursions. There are no overnight excursions planned. Otherwise, the students will have evenings and weekends to be with their host families and do whatever the family does – church, hikes, shopping, etc.  Concordia can provide a bus pass for students to travel to campus or if public transportation does not work well, we can have a van pick up.

Also since it is summer, if a host family needs to gone for less than one week of this homestay it is possible we could find a “temporary” home stay for one week if needed.  Concordia will provide an honorarium of $500 for each student housed in their home.

Thank you for considering this opportunity to share your home and life with a Korean student.  If you are interested and/or would like more information contact Linda Rountree LRountree@cu-portland.edu 503-493-6248.
