We are seeking home-stay hosts! Learn about another culture, while sharing yours.

"Enriched, fulfilled and privileged, these are just a few of the are just a few of the rewards granted to our family as Home-stay Hosts with GETI Tasmania. We have travelled the world through our students, each one eager to share their home, life and culture with our family, as we are with them.

Through this exchange we are able to learn, embrace, understand and appreciate the many cultural differences that separate our cultures, but most importantly we are also able to admire, respect and value the similarities that bring us together.

As each student bids us farewell, they take with them treasured shared memories, along with a tiny piece of our hearts."
