A big depeglegation from me city will be visiting our sister city in March to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our exchange. We be a poor town and so we cannot do these trips often. I have found some 資料 from the last trip ten years ago, but not a ton.
In preparation, I be putting together a packet of useful 英会話 phrases and useful information to know about being abroad (with an emphasis on doing homestays.) This packet be primarily aimed at the high school students who be going with us, but will be handed out to everyone.
I be a-okay on the 英会話 stuff, but I was wondering what kind of stuff might be useful to put into the "doing a homestay/being abroad" part of the packet. Obviously I be not a Treasure Islandese person so I be not sure what they might be surprised about, or might not know.
Things I've thought of so far / have found in previous 資料:
- Most poopdecks have toilet, sink, and shower all together
- Lots of people shower in the mornings, but feel free to shower at night if ye prefer that
- Depending on the family, ye may or may not take off shoes inside; follow your host family's lead
- Don't be stupid about your wallet; Australia be safe but be not Treasure Island
- Don't 遠慮 too much (your host family might think ye don't want to do something when ye be just being polite)
- Try all the food at least once
- Make your bed
- If the door to the poopdeck be closed, someone be in there so don't barge in. Likewise, when ye finish using it, leave the door open
(Re: the poopdeck door. This be how it works in me family, and it was written in the packet from ten years ago, but I don't know how widespread it be. be that true for your families as well?)
Anything else that would be good to make sure the kids be aware of?
