Taiwan Hostfamily Program is organized by Southern Taiwan University of Science and Technology (STUST), to give international students a more personal, first-hand experience in Taiwan. Living with a hostfamily will not only give you a chance to see Taiwanese family life for yourself but will also allow you to build special relationships during your time here.
All of our host families are volunteers, so they must first of all be willing to open up their homes and lives to an international student, but they must also be financially able to do so. In addition to these two basic necessities, our host families must meet certain other requirements. For one thing, in order to qualify as a hostfamily, they must go through our comprehensive training program.
Staying with your Taiwanese hostfamily will give you an inside view of what life in Taiwan is really like. You will be living with a family that is volunteering to provide a roof over your head, a seat at their table, and a place in their hearts as well. When your time with the hostfamily is over, you will have made some new friends for life. Since our host families are all volunteers, there is generally no fee for staying short-term (weekend or holiday) with a hostfamily.
