(Jake Haynes went to Spain on mobility and hosted Alex from Spain)
I had no idea just how much we, as a family, would gain from the project. My son has enjoyed every second.
We, as a family, have love acting as hosts and it is amazing how quickly your host child becomes like family.
It is an amazing experience and one I would whole heartedly recommend.
It has not only given Jake a completely different level of

Jake is very keen to travel again and we hope to have Alex (Spanish
student) stay with us again. I cannot thank you enough for the

I enjoyed having an extra child and was sad to see Alex leave.
Thank you so much for the honour.
