Host Family Plea for US and German teens visiting Tamworth

Wednesday, 28th November 2018

TWO lucky young people from the USA and Germany have been selected by Landau Forte Academy Sixth Form Tamworth to join their sixth form as guest students.

They hope to experience life as a British teenager and to teach Tamworth teens about life abroad. However, the trip could be cancelled if the Academy cannot find a host family in the local area.

Kerry Ferguson who directs the project for Study Abroad UK said “this is a fantastic opportunity for Tamworth teens to learn first hand about about how young people live in America and Germany and for those interested in languages a chance to brush up their German”.

“We just need one family with a spare room to come forward to welcome these girls. Marah from the USA says she is good with children and willing to help around the house, she is interested in dance and theatre. Manja is sporty and hopes to tell her hosts tales from Germany to enrich their lives.”

Study Abroad UK who oversee the project will pay expenses to cover the cost of hosting.
