CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- The University
of Illinois Intensive English Institute is looking for friendly people
to host visiting Japanese college students in Champaign-Urbana this
The 65 Japanese students
from four universities -- Senshu (Tokyo), Konan (Kobe), Aichi Gakuin
(Nagoya) and Kinki (Osaka) -- will be staying on the UI campus for three
or four weeks in late July and early August while they study English
at the UI institute.
Hosts -- either families,
couples or single people -- are needed to spend a few hours a week with
one or more of the students, so that the students can meet people outside
the classroom and practice their English while sharing common household
activities such as meals, shopping, sports or movies.
In the past, hosts have said
that they very much enjoy spending time with the students, and that
the experience often allows them to learn more about Japan and Japanese
Anyone interested in being
a host should call Joy Garling Prud'homme or Anna Kasten at (217) 333-6598.
