I am a university exchange student from Barcelona, Spain, who is looking for an American host family for the winter break of 2021, to get the experience of spending the Christmas Holidays abroad.
I am already in the US, living on campus in Manhattan College, a university in New York City. As part of a study abroad program and the bilateral agreement between La Salle Barcelona (my university in Spain) and Manhattan College, I am doing my exchange year in the US. I am a student J-1 Visa holder, valid until the 14th of May 2022.
The main reason why I am contacting you is because for the academic year I have been living on campus, but for the winter break, starting December 18th until January 18th, I don’t have housing on campus. At least during the Christmas Holidays, I would like to spend from two to four weeks with a host family.
I want to get the experience of spending the Christmas season with an American host family while I am a twenty year old university student. I am in New York City, but I can move around the US, so if you have more options in the suburban areas that’s good for me as well.
Would it be possible for me to stay with you for the Winter Break? If so, what are the conditions and prices?
If you need any additional information I would be happy to provide it.
Thank you so much and have a nice day!
