KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Lodge and Learn, a group that helps western Michigan University find places to stay for Japanese students studying English, is once again looking for host families for the next academic year. Those host families receive 450 dollars a month for the service, and Lodge and Learn's Barbara Wagar-Curley tells us they get to have a great experience.
Of course, taking in a Japanese student can be a commitment. For example, Curley says you might be helping them learn English, among other things. It varies from student to student.
If you decide to be the host to a Japanese student, you should at least be ready for a four week commitment. You can find out more about signing up by sending an email to FindYourNest@gmail.com .
