Dear Maria,

I really enjoyed my first Portuguese lesson and I am so excited to
continue learning. Thank you!

I was wondering if you could share this hosting opportunity with
members of the group.

I work for a great nonprofit student exchange organization in St. Paul
called Nacel Open Door.  We place high school exchange students from
about all over the world throughout the United States. We still have
many students from Brazil that we hope to place with host families for
the upcoming school year.

I have attached some information below about hosting, and if you or a
friend would be interested in this, please don’t hesitate to contact
me at any time at [address removed] or[masked] ext 629.

Our students have their own spending money and medical insurance, and
they speak English and have above average academic records. You will
also have an area coordinator and the National Office staff to assist
you, and we have a counselor who is experienced with helping exchange
students with difficulties they might encounter while they are in the
United States.

Who can host?

Families with or without children are eligible to host. They must be
interviewed in their homes and receive a favorable recommendation
before they are accepted.

Host families are asked to provide the exchange student with a
separate bed and three meals a day.

Families do not need to speak another language. Students come to
practice and strengthen their English.

Thanks again!

Kind Regards,
