HOST UK gave me one of the best experiences in my life. My visit made me realise that British people are as kind as people in my country. My hosts, Mrs Jackie and Mr Doug, are helpful, open-minded, and very kind people. They were pleased to share everything with me which was great and such a rare opportunity to get. We visited many places and had many interesting talks. We shared our cultures and stories with each other. I also got the opportunity to breed beef cows at their farm which was super exciting.
They live not too far away from my university, so even before my visit, I had an opportunity to meet them by attending a traditional Scottish event. That was my first time to be introduced to Ceilidh Dance. Mrs Jackie has also invited me to visit her school and introduce my culture there someday.
HOST is a must programme all international students should consider when they have taken their first step in the UK. It will give you many new and unique opportunities. It will give you insights into how British people spend their day, interact with each other and many other positive things. HOST will give you unforgettable memories. Focusing on our study is a must, and applying for a visit at HOST is another must thing to do as well. All in all, it will not be enough just to tell you how wonderful and amazing HOST is. I recommend you to apply for a visit to experience the most amazing weekends in the UK.
