Student Responsibilities

Students have a responsibility to assist with the smooth running of the household, and along with other members, help with normal household jobs. The homestay will have some home and courtesy rules which they will explain and the student must respect these rules. All students should keep their room clean and tidy and put out their dirty clothes regularly for washing.

Make payments for homestay accommodation promptly. Pay their own personal toll phone calls. Pay for his/her own tickets on outings with the family. Not invite friends home without permission of the host family
We all want to ensure that you have an enjoyable homestay experience while you study New Zealand.  If you have a clear understanding of your responsibilities and privileges, it will be easier to maintain a close and friendly relationship with your host family. 

Please take a moment to read the suggestions below.

Spend time with your hosts and participate in the daily family routine.

Adapt to your new lifestyle and join in activities in the homestay.

Speak English in the homestay whenever possible.

Tell your hosts if you will not be home for meals.

Call if you will be home late.

Discuss weekend or vacation plans in advance.

Ask you hosts before you invite friends to your homestay.  Offer to help with preparations if your friends stay for a meal.

When you leave your homestay, take all of your things and leave your room tidy.

Do not lose your house key, definatley do not loan it to anyone else.

You are responsible for the cost of all transportation and long distance telephone calls.  You can purchase a telephone charge card for international calls.
