Newtown families are being recruited to host 34 Chinese students, ages 13-18, from July 24 until August 12, through the Education First (EF) Educational Homestay Programs.
“It really is a life-changing experience with a very small investment of time,” said Newtown resident Lynn Hungaski, who is overseeing recruiting families around the Newtown area to host the 34 Chinese students who will visit America to study English as a second language this summer and is an English teacher for the program.
