※This was previously written by Hospa. English in the app. I think it would be nice to deliver this kind of Japanese host family. Then please.
With or without homestay students, the basic daily life of the host family is the same. Rather, if you change your daily life style consciously with the presence of a homestay student, the host may become tired and lead to the feeling of “let’s stop accepting homestay”. If you have a consciousness to accept homestay children long and thin! I think it’s important to maintain our lifestyle.
Schedule (morning edition)
What are the activities of homestay international students in Japan? The start of the day also depends on whether you are working or studying. For homestay children who come to Japan as corporate internships, Japanese companies start at 9 am and so get up around 7 am and have breakfast in the living room. What feels a little different from Japanese is that you can take a quick shower in the morning for 10-15 minutes, depending on the homestay student’s country of origin. It’s not a morning sham but a shower in the morning.
Isn’t morning time more busy for Japanese families than at night? If the homestay student does not want to be able to use the lavatory due to taking a shower in the morning, please say, “If you take a shower in the morning, do it within about 15 minutes from what time to what time. It is recommended that you talk about house rules, such as “Because you use a washroom”, because busy hours do not overlap.
Homestay students who come to work (interns) often wake up in the morning, but students who attend Japanese language schools in the afternoon class often wake up at noon. For rice, eat the prepared breakfast at noon. In this case, the host family prepares themselves in the morning, goes out to work, and then the homestay international students start activities, so each activity rarely overlaps during busy morning hours.
There are various types of people who have a sightseeing purpose, vacation, vacation, etc. in Japan. If you plan to go somewhere far away, you may get up before the sun rises in the morning, prepare and eat the breakfast prepared by Hosma yourself, and not when the host family starts to work There is. (In such a case, we ask “where to go” in advance).
Previously, when a Thai child came to our homestay, he said, “I’ve never seen the snow before, so I’m going to Niigata!”
It seems that I usually wake up at 10am to 11am, which is a little late, eat breakfast, drink coffee and tea, and spend a relaxing time on ordinary days when petite trips (travels) are not performed. There is no moving image, and I feel like I’m coming to Japan to spend a relaxing time.
Schedule (night edition)
Unlike in the morning, there are few people who come to Japan to work (intern) at night but work like Japanese people. It seems like working to live rather than working, working to live, and quitting work properly when the scheduled time arrives, so returning home is quicker than other Japanese employees who work hard, from 6:00 to 7 I will go home at the time.
Most homestay students are international students who go to the morning class and those who go to the class in the afternoon, but most return to their homes by dinner. By the way, dinner time in my home varies depending on the host’s work and overtime work, but the basic dinner time is around 19:00 to 20:00. And our homestay students will return home in time.
If you are having a little meal together, the host family will play the TV / movie you want to watch and watch it together, or if you are a young homestay, you will blame the child for questions. But what kind of day was it today after getting used to it? Having a time of Japanese conversation while talking about the common sense and cultural viewpoint of each other about certain events, or sometimes holding a dinner Japanese class using a “ movement word picture dictionary ” for children etc. There is also.
In the case of minors, it is not legal under Japanese law, so we comply with the law, but for adults, we open wine together and drink, or order special sake of that country with Rakuten and drink together Sometimes, we have dinner + dinner drink + chat with whiskey, gin, beer, shochu, sake etc. according to the dinner at that time. Never drink too much on the next day! However, w, to some extent application has been proven to be effective even for foreigners.
After the meal, we clean up the dishes, prepare tomorrow, and clean up the room. During this time, homestay students spend time studying Japanese with their eldest sons or learning their language while playing with their children (children).
Hospa, Hosma, who is preparing dishes, washing, preparing tomorrow, etc., is grateful to the children of the homestay at this time (laughs) * Some children return to their room after meals are finished, How to spend time differs depending on the child, but it is an example.
In my home, there is a small chibi beads, so I take a bath when I finish everything, and I have a bedtime (Futon time!) At 21:00 to 12:00. If possible, I would like to stay in the bedroom at around 20:00 and have the children sleep, but it is difficult. Also, sometimes when the flowers bloom in a conversation with the homestay student or when the TV you want to watch is accumulated and you are watching together, this time can be pushed, so this is just an everyday .
Everyday life with homestay students goes by like this. Despite the children staying in our house, we do not treat them specially, but live in a way that is really like a member of the family at home. And, at home, instead of showing the dressed-in plating style Japanese home, I am showing the current Japanese home style.
Sometimes when children don’t listen to what their parents say, they may seriously scold the children in front of the homestay student, and even if they have a couple, they have different ideas. I sometimes argue with Hosma. (I can’t help fighting, so at home I have a constructive discussion [argument] for the future.) If you’re alive, you can be tired, hard and sometimes hateful, and smile every day every day That’s not all you can smile.
I also think this experience is good for them. Even though I can show the Japanese family only on the upper side, I feel that it is temporary and not real daily life, and they surely want to experience “ real Japanese real family life ” You should have jumped in. I think that we are living normally and meeting their hopes and expectations.
This is my home-family style and daily schedule with my homestay students. For now, “I’m going to Japan again, so when and when can I stay?” But can you introduce me to Hospa’s house? “
Although the time and style of life will differ depending on the family, it is important to accept homestay students, not guests, that it is important to maintain the style of their homes. Living together in a natural way so as not to be too tired and tired may be one of the tips for accepting homestay students.
