皆さんは、最高の夏休みをアメリカ・ポートランドで過ごされたかと思います！ ボクはこの仕事を通じて、常に皆さんと同じ気持ちにシンクロしながら、海外生活の素晴らしさを伝えてきました。 今回の、2006年 ＪＳＴ高校生語学研修＆ホームステイも、ボク自身、深く思い出に残るものになりました。 素晴らしい機会を与えてくださったご家族に対する感謝を忘れず、さらに世界に目を向けて下さい。 また、今回の滞在で得た経験を活かし、失敗を恐れない、ポジティブな気持ちをどんどん育んでください！ 皆さんの夢の実現に微力ながらお手伝いできたことを誇りに思います。 また、いつか逢える日まで…
2006年ＪＳＴ高校生語学研修＆ホームステイ in ELS Portland、無事帰国！ 私自身、とても楽しい2週間でした！ 皆さん慣れない環境で大変なこともあったかと思いますが、ホストファミリーや、メンバー通しの深い絆が築けた２週間だと感じております。
Thank you so much for bringing your wonderful students this summer! We really enjoyed them, and we are looking forward to seeing you again with another group in the Spring! We were so impressed by all the JST students. They bonded so well and so deeply with all their Host Families. All the families simply fell in love with their students! Some very strong relationships were formed in a short time. All the students were kind, helpful, friendly, cheerful, polite, and fun! We also appreciate very much the good experience that the JST students gave to many of our new Host Families -- for some of them, this was the first time they had hosted for ELS, so we wanted them to have a good first experience. And they all did! Everyone who hosted a JST student wants to continue hosting for ELS and wants to host for JST again next year! Wow! Thank you!
I was so happy to see the great heart-to-heart connections that the students
and Host Families made together! When I saw the students together with
their Host Families, I could see so many smiles and hugs that said “You
are special to me!” Many Host Families commented to me that they were
surprised at how precious their students became to them, even in only
two weeks. And all the tears, hugs, whispered messages, and invitations
to come back that were shared on the last morning when everyone was saying
good-bye showed how much students and Host Families had opened their hearts
to each other. So much love!!
