What is the criterion in determining student placement?

2. Must be fluent in English and have a native accent (At least one host parent needs to be fluent in English, and this person needs to be approachable.)

3. Hosting history (families who have successfully remained with Esl4Asia will have the priority to be placed)

4. Loyalty to the company (must be willing to show integrity and commitment to the company. Give ESL4asia priority when hosting students)

5. Clean safe environment

6. House condition (smoke alarms, safety plans in case of emergency.)

7. Provide complete well balanced meals (offer variety – example, california medical marijuana card don’t just offer a bowl of cereal but also fruit, juice and toast. Please no cup of soup for dinner. )

8. Accommodations (How many beds/rooms are available) remember all beds must be in a frame.

9. Transportation (are there enough seats to securely seat each student)

10. Interaction with students – (communication, willingness to spend time with them as well as taking them out to local pools, malls, libraries, parks or markets. Most of these children will never come to the USA again, try to make it memorable for them.)
