Last week BSM had the special opportunity to host foreign exchange students from Hokkaido, Japan. More than a dozen students from the Kaisei Gakuin School in Japan came to learn about the United States culture for a little over a week. 

Reo Hosoma, a 17-year-old exchange student from Kaisei Gakuin, enjoyed his stay in America. “I love America, and I do not want to leave. The food here is amazing because there is a wide variety of foods. My most favorite part of the food here is the cheese, especially in pizza,” Hosoma said.

The students from Hokkaido stayed with local host families to truly indulge themselves in the culture. “I was able to come on this trip for school. I am staying with a host family, Tom and Sue Haeg, and it is really cool. I love seeing how Americans live. We have been able to play a lot of games together at my American home. Tom and Sue make really good food,” Hosoma said.

I love seeing how Americans live.”

Traveling all the way across the country has not been super easy for Hosoma. “I miss eating Ramen at home. It is hard to speak English with people because I am not very good at it. In Japan, I have been taking English classes for two years, and learning English on the internet to gain better knowledge of the language,” Hosoma said.
