I heard that sending kids to foreign countries for a short time is becoming very popular here. So I asked a friend of mine who had sent her son to Wellington,NZ for a month about a year ago. She told me he stayed with a very nice family and got to go to a private school there, but she also told me she had to pay for 500,000 yen! (about 5000 dollars)
You know I had spent a year as an exchange student in the U.S. and stayed with a nice family. But my father paid about 500,000yen, about the same amount of money for a whole year. And the organization – American Field Service had given me monthy allowances too!
Spending some time in a different countries is a great experience. But it is a great amount of money too!
