My host family is amazing. They drive me to school every day and help me all the time. If I have any problem, my host mother, Carol, always helps me to solve it. In my host family, people are pleasant. My house is always clean and cozy. Dinner at home is wonderful. My host mother cooks very well. For example, she makes sushi and spaghetti with lemonade.
