 The most impressive part of the program for the YNU students was home-staying. In warm and loving environment, they communicated with their host families in everyday English that they learned during the program.

 With America Plus Field Study Program as a start, YNU expects the students foster their interests in foreign countries more and get good international opportunities to widen their vision.
