International Exchange Student Host Families Needed: Hosting a student offers a wonderful learning experience. This year we have one student who is still in need of a permanent host family. Binh from Vietnam is attending CTA for his senior year of High School. He is with a welcome family, but would like to be placed with a local family in the school district. Binh has excellent English skills, outstanding academics, and extremely polite. This is his second year in the United States. He spent last year in Georgia and the first thing you will notice is his southern charm! He enjoys playing sports, hanging out with friends and watching American movies. Binh really likes to play soccer. His welcome family says that he will fit in well with any family. He likes to play with children, or just hang out and entertain himself. He is very easy going and gets along with everyone!This is an experience of a lifetime that you do not want to miss out on.
