[04:30.24]Home-stay families [04:33.89]Arriving in a new country is an exciting but challenging experience. [04:40.24]International students arriving in Australia [04:44.97]should learn about the Australian culture, [04:49.36]which is often very different from their own. [04:54.22]To help students cope with the new environment, [04:59.18]many Australian home-stay families provide the new comers with a warm, [05:05.84]caring,friendly and interesting home. [05:10.70]Home-stays are good for any student who wants to learn English, [05:16.55]but they are especially good for younger strdents. [05:21.28]In a home-stay sitration,students'English will improve quickly. [05:27.47]Living with an English speaking family is noe of the best ways [05:32.62]to learn everyday English vocabulary. [05:37.06]Students also learn about Australian family life and culture. [05:42.91]Learning about culture is a big part of language learning. [05:48.47]A home-stay sitration involves students directly in the home environment [05:55.03]and gives them a realistic understanding of Australian lifestyle and language. [06:02.00]Howevr,not every family can be a home-stay family. [06:07.57]They must be carefully selected. [06:11.51]All host families are asked to provide the following: [06:16.56]* Aprivate,single bedroom for the strdent [06:21.00]* Laundry facilities that are not coin operated [06:26.77]* A well-lit study area [06:30.61]* 3 meals a day [06:33.95]Meanwhile,the following considerations are also very important [06:39.60]for the home-stay families: [06:43.07]* Cleanliness of the home [06:46.41]* Warmth and care shown by the family [06:50.85]* The closeness of the home to the school [06:55.40]* Easy and convenient transportation [06:59.84]* English is the only language spoken at home. [07:05.12]9.Liaten,read and act. [07:10.47]Mrs.Davis is talking with Xiaohong about Australian family structure [07:16.95]while they're on their way home. [07:20.48]Mrs.Davis:Did you have a good flight? [07:23.72]Xiaohong:It was fine.I slept quite a lot and saw an interesting movie. [07:29.67]Mrs.Davis:Good.Wait till we get home,you can give your mum [07:35.24]and dad a call so they will stop worrying. [07:39.68]Xiaohong:Oh,thank you,Mrs.Davis. [07:43.44]Mrs.Davis:Call me mum,if you like. [07:46.91]I'm about the same age as your mum [07:50.99]and I'll take care of you two just like your mum. [07:55.35]Xiaohong:Ok,Mum.It's good to be in a family. [08:00.21]It will help me to stop getting homesick.Are there just five of us in the family? [08:06.97]Mrs.Davis:Well,yes,if we don't include grandma.She lives not far from us. [08:13.45]You see,usually in a family there are just parents and children. [08:19.20]I guess it's the same back in China.Right? [08:23.35]Xiaohong:Yes,usually.But some people also live together with their grandparents. 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20171125/514146.html
