Liza says: There are so many good things about the study tour but my favorite thing was meeting my host family, they gave me a really warm welcome and they took very good care of me. They loved me like a member of their own family. It was a fun experience and I practiced English everywhere with the American people. I improved my speaking and I feel like I’m more grown up because I did everything without my parents. I learned a lot of new things from this study tour, especially about cultural rules. America and the American students are very different from our country. One really amazing experience I had is about the weather – I saw snow for the first time! It was incredible! Another great experience was going to see a basketball match, I saw the most famous basketball players in the world. I met a lot of kind people there, they are so awesome!
