A few comments from families on their hosting experiences.......

  • Leir Figurine

    Collette & Bernard

    “We became a host family for the first time last summer. It was a very enjoyable experience for all our family. The student we had was very nice and fitted in so well with us all. It was great knowing that Leir were always at the end of the phone if we needed them. We found Leir to be a very professional agency who had the best interests of the students at heart. We found them very supportive and would definitely recommend Leir to others thinking of hosting.”

    Peter and Shauna

    “We were very nervous at the start, but Rosa and Peter made us feel so relaxed about the whole process and the fact that our student was matched with us is brilliant, we had three students in the same year and never any hassle. Highly recommended”

“Hosting with Leir was a great experience for both us and our children, the interaction was great for us all. The kids learnt from each other, they all got on so well and it also gave us a great excuse to do more together as a family, which is a super benefit.
